It’s Yammer time…
It’s Yammer time…
Do you have or are you thinking of introducing Yammer into your organisation? Do you know how to use it, how do other people use Yammer for internal communication and are there any tips and best practice around?
Queries about using Yammer as an option for an enterprise social network is one of the most popular ways people reach my blog. Welcome if that’s you!
I thought I’d collate the information that I’ve published to date in one place so if you are looking into how to use Yammer, you have a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips.
Using something else? I’ve collated 243 examples (and growing!) of what companies are using for their enterprise social networks/ internal social media/ collaboration.
Call it what you will, there is a lot to choose from including Chatter, Jive, Lync, SharePoint, Interact and many more.
To find out more and view the examples, check out my round-up of case studies.
Come across one that’s not on the list? Do Tweet me @AllthingsIC or comment below to point me towards the link to include.
It’s a constant mission to keep these links updated, do let me know if there’s a broken link.
Ready? Let’s go…
