Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2010 enables custom audience targeting for content and sites. The purpose is to define audiences and content that are relevant to a user or a group. As a server or site administrator, you can define audiences and content for a specific set of users or groups. The following steps will teach you how to complete the configuration.  

Step 1. Create two users in Active Directory which names are “test1″ and “test2″.


Step 2. Log in the SharePoint site with the administrator.

Step3. Go to Site Settings>Site collection features, start the “SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure” feature, then go to “Site collection navigation” to check if “Enable audience targeting” is selected. 50 51
