Microsoft has done a great job at providing numerous types of sites for organizations to get up and running quickly and productive in a very short period of time.

However, as with all technology new options for sites are being introduced all the time and with the weekly updates to features and functionality it can all be a little overwhelming and confusing to say the least. Key thing to remember is, just because it exists does not mean you have to use it.
