  • Simple Social Media for Business

    What do you like best?

    This has really helped our in-house communication I think. It has been difficult to get people to sign up for it, but those that have have found it an easy way to keep everyone else informed on what is happening in different departments. It has also been a good way to share ideas and resources used across campus.

    What do you dislike?

    There is nothing in particular to dislike for me. With that being said, nothing about it truly stands out. It doesn't offer anything particularly special or innovative- not to say that the communication aspect is not useful though.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    If you need a simple form of communication between a large, diverse group of people then this could be a great product. The biggest hurdle is simply getting buy-in among different members of your company/community. Without the buy-in, effort, and participation then it is useless. With those things then it could be very useful and informative.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Communication between departments and between faculty and staff has been poor in the past- this is one of our solutions for promoting dialogue across realms. So far I have benefitted from it.

    I use Yammer for internal social networking

    What do you like best?

    I enjoy using the great yammer app on my phone to collaborate with my colleagues. This is critical to forming business relationships and drive business development. Staying in touch with the people that I work with enables and empowers me to deliver the best solutions to my clients in the most efficient and profitable way. In addition having Yammer as an internal social network allows us to social network without relying on facebook which may be distracting for many users because they get side tracked with all of the cute cat photos. This intern increases employee productivity and decreases positive production down time.

    What do you dislike?

    I always have trouble logging in to Yammer I am not sure if that has to do with our internal network or if its a problem with yammer. In addition, yammer has limited public exposure so we don't get the utilization that we would have liked to see by having our people logging on to yammer on a frequent basis. Yammer can step up their marketing to that employees know that it exists so that we do not have to go at it alone to educate our people on the use of yammer.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    I would consider of tools as well.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    We are trying to build collaboration and teamwork between the teams that we work with locally, nationally and around the world. We have more people talking which drives greater innovation and the realization of profitability.

  • Most things in Yammer are focused around the idea of groups having conversations, there is still much flexibility in what that means. When I go to share an update with the group I am able to add text but also do much more, including adding a document to my post, creating a quick poll question, giving someone praise or posting information about an event. In addition, for each item you can add Tags to help classify the content and make it easier to be found later.

  • Too Enterprisy

    Yammer was pretty amazing when it came out but has since become to much like an enterprise feeling product. My team doesn't want to spend the day in a sharepoint like experience. We tried other products like podio but ended up using HALL.com, highly recommend it

    Basic plan is free

    This is a great collaboration tool! Basically I chose Yammer because the basic plan is free and I wanted my social media team to talk more about work and their projects. And it worked... Now they use Yammer to post microblogging messages and I think the overall collaboration got better. It´?¢s fun!

    Pros : The basic plan is free! Give it a try...

    Cons : Even though it is a very good tool there is the risk to get distracted and get less of the normal work done.

  • From Yammer's home page, the sign up process is fast with just your company's domain email address. First impressions usually are the best and surely enterprise social networks (ESNs) will not become a Facebook look-alike contest. Although the user interface has a similar look and feel, Yammer's social business platform standard has its own crisp identity.
    If enterprise transparency is the goal, then Yammer does this well. Shareable content at discoverable points within the application will prompt group collaboration.

  • If your employees aren’t talking about work enough and when they are, it’s lost in email and hidden from the rest of the team, then Yammer might be a good fit. But if you need your team to talk more and also rally together on projects, tasks, ideas, documents, and plan events, then Yammer just isn’t the Enterprise Social Network tool you need.
