SharePoint has a variety of methods for communicating a message depending on the kind of message are you trying to communicate.
Here are a few questions that may help determine the best method to use.
Used to push a message to the users. Responses from users are not expected.
Example: All time-sheets MUST be entered by end of business today!
Example: Open Enrollment will end November 30. Make sure to submit all documentation to HR before end of business on November 30.
Example: Cupcakes are on sale in the employee lounge to benefit Cancer Awareness.
An easy method to collaborate. Used to deliver ideas, new policy proposals, ask a question or present a suggestion. When you post a topic, users can comment, users can reply to each other's comments, users can ask questions or "like" the post.
