SharePoint Online Social Bar (Major Update)

New feature: SharePoint Online Social Bar

Major update: General Availability rollout started

Applied to: All customers

The Social Bar is a new Office 365 feature. This feature is scheduled to roll out to Targeted Release customers later this week, and it will be available for all organizations on April 1, 2018.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 23708.

[How does this affect me?]
The Social Bar will appear on all modern SharePoint Online pages with the exception of the home page of a site. It will give your users the ability to like a page, see the number of views, likes, and comments on a page, and see the people who have liked a page. This visibility will be available to anyone that has been granted access to view the page.
This feature will be launched default on. As administrator, if you wish to disable Social Bar for your organization, you can do so with the following PowerShell command:

To disable Social Bar on a tenant level:
Set-SPOTenant -SocialBarOnSitePagesDisabled $true

To disable social bar on a site level (for site):
Set-SPOSite -Identity -SocialBarOnSitePagesDisabled $true
