Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Tips & Tricks (part 2/3)

9. Use the I Like It button when you want to tag content to remember later, but don’t want to apply additional tags and notes right away. You can add other specific tags later if you like. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/use-tags-and-notes-to-share-information-with-colleagues-HA101810816.aspx

10. You can stay updated on changes to documents and list items on your SharePoint site by receiving notifications of changes as alerts and Really Simple Syndication (RSS), if your site is configured to send them. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/create-an-alert-or-subscribe-to-an-rss-feed-HA010378197.aspx

11. When communicating through email, adding a link to a file is more efficient than adding an email attachment. It ensures that the latest copy is being accessed and reduces network traffic and email storage. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/e-mail-or-copy-the-link-of-a-library-file-list-or-list-item-HA102397542.aspx

12. When selecting a URL for your new site, remove spaces to ensure that your link is both shorter and less likely to break when shared via email or instant message.
