I've got a grate video from Brendon Seppa, where he is comparing social file sharing capabilities of IBM Connections 3.0.1 and MS Sharepoint 2010.
Try to guess who wins the battle ;-)
Enjoy the fight here:

Grate news everyone!
Yesterday, April 5, IBM Connections 3.0.1 was announced! All the new features are added to the Communities service and the description from the announcement letter:
Moderating community content
Community owners are provided with new capabilities for the moderation of a community's content. These capabilities help community owners realize the benefits of active and vibrant community participation, while having the confidence of being able to moderate the content that appears in a community.
Enhancing communities with video and photo sharing
The Media Gallery feature permits the sharing of videos and photos with a community. These capabilities can help attract more visitors to a community by creating a more compelling and satisfying experience for community members.
Generating ideas within a community
The Ideation Blog feature is designed to help simplify the sharing of ideas within a community, voting on the ideas and moving the best ideas forward as projects. These new capabilities can, for example, help gather ideas from customers in a structured manner, and facilitate turning the best ideas into new services and offerings.
Integration with Enterprise Content Management (ECM) repositories
The ECM integration helps users to store, access, and edit documents residing in FileNet® Content Manager and IBM Content Manager from within a Community.
In addition you can try all this new and shiny capabilities in this community on Greenhouse: IBM Connections 3.0.1 Demo Community on Lotus Greenhouse.
