Hey @Anjan Dutta
As @Martin Seibert said, we offer a social intranet solution built on top of Confluence. You can see linchpin in action on our Demonstration Site. If you have questions or would like a demo please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org or schedule a demo with me at https://calendly.com/chelke.
I'm one month into using Confluence as a Company-wide intranet, and so far the reception has been really positive.
We're starting relatively small: day one it was more of a static view, with a couple of people clued-up on how to post content. In the subsequent days I have been introducing more and more people to the true power of Confluence & collaborative editing. It is going really, really well here -- mainly because the Intranet feels alive; people who don't know how to write webpages can easily chip in, and the blog concept has already stuck fast with some departments.
One thing I would say: make sure to get a CMS (Content Management System) that can change the look and feel of Confluence -- it gives that wow factor to the sites. Ourselves, we used Refined Themes for Confluence (and I assume @Support RefinedWiki would happily fill you in with more details).
Thanks for the shout-out, Thomas! We’d be happy to assist on any questions anyone may have for turning on intranet features in Confluence. We have a demo environment here if you want to take a look: https://confluence.refinedwiki.com/

I personally tested nearly every intranet sollution based on Confluence. Best one is Linchpin Intranet Suite or cheaper version Linchpin Essentials. It will add everything and more what you need for company intranet. News, News digest, company Events, Microblogs, new nice macros, personalization, Aps, Org chart and on top of all - mobile access behind!!!! your firewall.... Even free Unsplash picture database is integrated, to help you create posts. Please go to Linchpin DEMO site, log in as Pamela and check everything even from admin view, including all pages, macros, admin setting etc. This is unbelievable experience and help from //Seiber Media/ team for you as admin or for any your people working later with intranet. And you can really count on //Seibert Media/ customer support, they are fast and really experienced.
Other addons we are using are:
- Draw.io for diagrams
- Blueprint Creator to prepare blueprints for users
- Aura for nice pages
- Team files for docs integration
- some others macros for integration to other company IT systems (Power Scripts, Insight, SQL )
Do you recognize this as Confluence?
I started to use the Confluence several months later than my co-workers because I wasn't convinced to use it and I was a little bit scared to use so expanded tool (as it seemed to be).
All employees of my company are using Confluence in their everyday work, in every project. They can share important content with other team members or with the whole company. Confluence is improving its functionalities every day and is user-friendly. I'm creating and attaching there a lot of text content and links, presentations, videos etc. as well. All our internal company's guidelines, important information for new members, training, warnings, advice, project details and many, many other things are now in one place and are available for each employee in any time. Using confluence is intuitive and very legible. I completely moved there all docs and content from another tool. Now, I'm a happy 1-year experienced user of this Jira tool and can recommend you to introduce it to your company.
I can say that Atlassian uses Confluence as our intranet. It's a great way for us to use our own products so we are Customers of Confluence, too.
It's where we share decisions, pages, blog posts, etc. internally. Everything is open by default and except for some company or individual-specific financial information most pages are open for anyone to view. It really creates a sense of openness and trust between teams.
I can highly recommend it for your company intranet.
Thanks for the note. I am interested in learning more regarding this. Would you be open to a conf call next week?
If you'd like to learn more about our open culture and our use of Confluence I can recommend the following:
I hope that helps!
