Come join the Exchange 2013 information sharing Facebook Group!


This group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/MSEX2013/, was created over two years ago and has grown to over 4,000 members and over 1,000 post, a year ago it had just over 600 members! The focus of this group is to share information about Exchange 2013, with a bit of leeway given for Exchange 2010 and Office 365 related items.

So what does “information sharing” mean? This mainly includes people sharing blog posts they’ve created, or ones they have come across that they feel are worth sharing. It also includes some basic architecture and functionality questions and discussions. What it DOES NOT include is support or help on issues. Facebook is a poor platform for providing support, in addition on the Microsoft TechNet forums people, like my fellow MVPs get credit for answering questions. These credits help them keep their Microsoft MVP status. So for support type questions goto the Microsoft TechNet forums on Exchange. Therefore, support questions\posts in most cases are deleted, as are any off topic or posts with little to no value. We, the admins of this groups, work hard to keep out the spammers and keep the noise to a minimum. Since this group is very focused there are normally less than a few posts per day in this group.

As you will see the most common poster and fellow group admin (Exchange blogger, writer, etc) is Tony Redmond, who runs two different blogs. Many other Microsoft Exchange MVPs and non-MVPs post links to their articles here also. So if you are looking for some of the latest blog posts and topics on Exchange 2013 check out this Facebook group. If you are a content creators and want to share your Exchange 2013 related content come join the group and feel free to post to it!

Disclaimer: This is an unofficial Microsoft Exchange group. This group is managed by independent Exchange experts. It is NOT an official group by Microsoft and is managed by individuals in their personal time. It is not supported, managed, or moderated by Microsoft in any official capacity. For official support please use TechNet forums or contact Microsoft PSS (Open a tickets from the web).

In the near future we will be activating another Facebook group that will focus on Exchange vNext (version after 2013) and Office 365. Almost all info on vNext is currently under NDA, so nothing to share about it yet. Once this info starts to become public we will then make this other group visible and share it in the current group.
