Finally, to get the most out of MySites, you’ll need to enable and configure the User Profile Synchronization Service. This is not a task to be taken lightly. It’s not required for MySites, but it adds a lot of functionality. Before attempting to tackle the User Profile Synchronization Service, do your homework. As a bonus, when you get the User Profile database populated, you will also be able to use SharePoint 2010’s new Silverlight-based Organization Browser. That’s always a crowd pleaser.
Hopefully, reading this has convinced you to give MySites a shot. With proper planning, they can be an integral part of helping with SharePoint adoption in your organization.
