Welcome to Social Squared Help
Getting Started with Social Squared

In this video, we start from scratch with the Social Squared Web Part by adding it to a SharePoint page. We then configure some Forum Groups and Forums. Once we have the structure as we want it, we add a topic, reply to the topic, and get a high level overview of the difference features such as badges, Featured Posts, Likes and Voting.
