Yammer productivity guide
Yammer is a leading enterprise social network for businesses from Microsoft, and can be used for private communication within organizations.
Yammer lets you and your organization’s employees harness the business power of social networking through an easy-to-use product with a familiar interface. With Yammer, you can finally end your dependence on distribution lists—which are an outdated mode of collaboration. Yammer is a file sharing, knowledge exchange, and team efficiency tool that is designed specifically for company collaboration, with transparency and inclusiveness in mind. Like distribution lists, Yammer lets you restrict who is included as a member; however, Yammer also creates an archive of information that can be retrieved by you or others who join your Yammer group.
The topics covered in this paper are:
- Getting started with Yammer

- Following people
- Putting Yammer to work for you
- What and how to post
