The new SCN is organized into more than 400 spaces, mostly topic or product based, which support small, self-contained communities. SCN spaces are typically focused around an SAP product , an industry, or some other topic related to SAP professionals. Topic spaces are social media worlds unto themselves. Each space contains a complete set of social networking tools including a discussion forum, a blogging area, and an area where you can publish and collaborate on documents.
Here are four strategies for finding interesting topic spaces in SCN.
