My Home Page
User Profiles and Personalization
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 extends the collaboration features by allowing site members to take advantage of user profile and personalization features that help site members better manage their personal view of the portal, make connections with other members, and view content targeted directly to them. The My Site personal portal gives the member the following:
