But you’d never know it how Microsoft is handling their blogging and facebook pages. Case in point the recent release of update rollup 2 for Windows home server that made the connector deployment work better on Lion. Posted to the blog? Nope. Posted to Facebook by a team member? Nope.
Today’s posting of the two bugs that throw off computer monitoring alerts – http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/7852.computer-monitoring-error-on-dashboard-or-launchpad.aspx, posted to the SBS Blog Yea! Posted to the Home Server Blog? http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b/windowshomeserver/
Nope. No posts since October.
And twitter? Even worse – http://twitter.com/winhomeserver no posts since August.
To be fair Microsoft folks are posting in the forum – http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/is/whs2011/threads
But in this day and age of “social” supposedly being where it’s at to showcase that you still care about a product, Microsoft is sadly lacking here. If you are going to “do social” then do social. And Windows Home Server 2011 is still a supported product and will be so until 2016. http://usingwindowshomeserver.com/2011/04/07/now-we-know-microsoft-lifecycle-support-dates-for-windows-home-server/
So Microsoft? How about in the year 2012 showcasing that you will still be supporting it in 2016 by blogging about it’s support issues?
