A good way to share information company wide, but I prefer MS Teams or Slack

2019-02-04

Pros

LinkedIn/message board style posting, allows conversation and feedback on posts.

Cons

I heard complaints of "another communication tool, why not just use email or Slack/MS Teams". Hard to get adoption.

Yammer is going away

2019-01-16

Pros

MS bought LinkedIn - it's clear yammer will be going away for those who used it.

Cons

No one needs to make plain text social announcements on Sharepoint, they do this via email with all kinds of graphics and fonts.

all in all yammer is a business level social networking platform.

Pros

This platform is a mix of linkedin and facebook.

Cons

As i said it has a large number of features which sometimes becomes an disguise for it so i think the makers should try and sort the features of this platform.

Yammer: An Easy Tool to Stay In Touch

2018-12-26

Overall, Yammer is extremely easy to get started with and gain comfort using.

Pros

If you're familiar with newsfeed type social media sites (like Facebook and LinkedIn), Yammer will seem familiar the first time you use it.

Cons

While Yammer is innovative for business communication, it doesn't really bring anything that's truly novel. As I previously mentioned, the layout and feel of yammer is very similar to popular social media sites.
