My Sites in SharePoint 2013, Office 365 and SharePoint Online

The My Site social architecture in SharePoint 2013, as shown in the figure below, has undergone several major updates and the “personal site” (My Site) as it is now being technically referenced, drives a great deal of the overall social technologies and experience in this new release.

The My Site drives the aggregation of the way users perform their everyday tasks within three difference major hubs. The personal site (My Site) drives sites, newsfeed and OneDrive for Business. The My Site is the central location that the underlying technology surfaces user profile data, search results, activity feeds and tagging capabilities for all users within your organization.

The My Site is the overall starting place for users to then navigate SharePoint 2013’s sites, lists, content and other data and where they can access the new features around newsfeeds, hashtags, community sites and OneDrive. When a My Site is created a matching site collection is created for you that includes a site template with a document library and several apps that provide insight into the sites, topics, people and events that you are interested in.

A My Site is a personal site that allows you to store personal information and access the events and data that are important to you and your day-to-day activities.
