Every week I’m contacted by professional communicators who are looking into using enterprise social networks in their organisation.

Many are just starting out on their journey, while others are a fair way down the line and after some advice and guidance.

virpiOne of the most popular articles on my blog is Who is using what for internal social media – my collation of providers and customer stories/case studies.

However, it’s my list of Yammer case studies (68 and counting, plus everything I’ve published on it since 2009) that is rummaged through the most.

I’ve featured Virpi Oinonen @voinonen (pictured) on my blog a number of times and enjoy her illustrations about all things internal communication and enterprise social network related. I had the pleasure to meet up with her a couple of months ago for dinner and it was good to finally have a conversation face-to-face after years of interacting online.

She recently went to the Microsoft Sharepoint conference in Las Vegas, and in her own unique style, has captured her thoughts in the form of an illustration – visual notes if you will.

Am sure you know already, but to recap a short history: Yammer was established in 2008 and acquired by Microsoft Corporation in 2012 for $1.2billion. It is now part of the Microsoft Office Division. The enterprise social network is part of the way 400,000 organisations communicate around the globe and it has eight million users.

Virpi wanted to know “Is Microsoft serious about going social with Yammer?” and you can see what she discovered below.

Tip: The red dots in the illustration open new links and content.

Enjoy…
