Nice! Here we are. The brand new and shinny SharePoint Online Home experience. I can see my frequently¬†visited sites with the latest activity. Seems like I am the only¬†one working at Sparked¬†right. Don’t tell anyone ūüėČ I really love the integration with the Office Graph. Nice to see these statistics, and valuable information, outside of Delve. The left side displays the sites¬†I am following, and easily can unfollow, and corporate links. The bottom of the screen contains suggested sites:SPHome5
