SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The "I like It" and "Tags & Notes" buttons in the ribbon are grayed out and "currently disabled", on my SP2010 site.I don't know how to enable them.

Also I am not using active directory but FBA system.

So can someone suggest how to enable tagging?

Specifically, the "Use social features" must be enabled, in order for tagging to be enabled (not 100% sure whether the buttons will actually be disabled or hidden, when "use social features=false", so you will need to verify this for yourself.)

You must have the User Profile Service running and a MySite
