Comments: I like because is free, and i cannot ask for another thing, at least keeping free

Pros: is easy to use, you can tag any of your company, you can add many groups to different kind of, you can use hashtag # to relate any topic as you want, and you can search too by hashtag or tag or simply for a word, you can reply by email or in your phone by the app even by twitter

Cons: I have been using this web application by many years and when Microsoft bought it become slow, and in that way is less efficient

Yammer works fine-if you can get everyone to buy in and use it.

Pros: Yammer is a communications instant messaging software-much like Facebook's Messenger, Google Chat, or any number of others. It works within the Office suite-which is fine-if you are collaborating with a group of people on a project and need to communicate with them quickly. It does the job quite well and it keeps the 'conversation threads' private and linked to your work. This is a good thing. You are not going to be distracted by games, adware, or cute kitten/puppy videos (we hope). It stays right there-working right along with you.

Cons: Problem with Yammer is-getting people to get on it and USE it. That is a major hassle. If they have been using Messenger, GChat, or something else, getting them to use Yammer will be akin to having root canals sans anaesthesia. Not a good experience. It can be done, but why would you?

Pros: Yeah!!! We get another form of facebook in office. Individual & group posts are best and educational here. I am using it since 2 years & it always entertain and give knowledge. we also come to know upcoming events in our company. If getting bore in office use it then.

Cons: There must be some event notification in calendars linked through organization/company mail and more entertain features must be added

Unsure if there's been major improvements but wasn't a great solution for us

Pros: it was treated like an internal "social media" for announcements and communications, but it was mainly an HR comm initiative and no one else really used it.

Cons: reminds me of Salesforce Chatter, only meant to be more social. We did use it to try to organize a company wide volunteer day, but the process was confusing and counter-intuitive.

It's fine...I don't think we used it the way it was meant to be used

Pros: It's like having your own social media platform! I believe we meant it to be used to connect different departments, and we did some of that. It's nice for company announcements. But we turned it into a meme-fest. So...enjoyable, but we didn't have many guidelines for it.

Cons: It felt like just another platform that we suddenly needed to be involved in. We already have Skype, so we didn't need an instant messaging tool. Like I said, we used it for company announcements, but it just turned into a meme-fest. While that was enjoyable...it wasn't really very productive at all. It might have helped if we had more guidelines to begin with. But at this point, we've basically let it die off.

Overall: It's nice for company announcements. We haven't been using very much, though. There was a big push and then we let it die down.

Pros: I like the social media layout of the software. This allows for people to already have an idea on how to use the software before any proper training. Allows for a cross-company form of communication.

Cons: A lot of useless notifications. if you are not active on the software for sometime, Microsoft likes to send random notifications to rope you back into using the software.

Overall: Added knowledge from other aspects of the company.

Pros: It looks a lot like Facebook, making it a fun tool to use. It was easy to use since we were familiarized with the platform.

Cons: When checking a private message and opening one of them, when you had to go back you had to scroll through all of the messages again, making it hard to quickly resume where you were going.

Overall: We keep track of the sales done on a daily basis.

Pros: Yammer acts like a social media platform inside of an organization.... it's like a facebook for your company. It can be used to share information, photos, updates, events, projects, and anything else. It's a good internal tool for communicating to people in your company. You can also create groups and sub-groups to make things easier to navigate.

Cons: With so many groups that you can follow, it can get very segmented very quickly, and it's possible that you can miss information. You can set up notifications however which helps. Visually it could benefit from some updates as well.

Pros: Yammer is fully equipped to serve as my network's central point of contact and communication. We have an international (dispersed) set of folks in my network, and we chose Yammer to be our communication hub. We have set up one work space for each work group - and another for our coordinating team. Not only do we use the group spaces, but the messaging between Yammer group members is extremely efficient and secure. We can write to individuals or create groups for ongoing within-Yammer communication. So even though we have to maintain security of information due to the part of the world we use this in, we have confidence in the security aspects. I also use the iOS Yammer app to access my account and messages.

Cons: I suppose it's meant to be a feature, but in a private message, if I type the name of someone who is also in our Yammer group into the body of a private message, Yammer automatically hyperlinks that person's name in the message as well as adds their name to the send-to list. While this is efficient, and while I can "undo" the link, it could I suppose cause some awkward situations if the sender never intended for that person to receive the message.

Pros: Everything is in one place -- discussions, files, etc. -- and it has a very familiar social-media style feed that allows my team to work easily together.

Cons: I wish it had better permissions/access control. There are different levels of access, but I'd like the ability to be a little more granular when needed.

Overall: Super easy, fast set up and intuitive collaboration tools.

Pros: My district uses Yammer for teachers. I have used it maybe 3-4 times. I think it is great. It allows teachers to communicate with a group instead of sending out emails. It is a quick way to touch base or ask questions. We have used it for ordering work tshirts, checking for supplies at different schools.

Cons: Most teachers do not utilize this program. I wish they were more informed about the program. Not the companies fault, but the district that purchased it.

Overall: easy communication between teachers and schools.

Overall: Be careful because I have seen someone lose their job. I like the concept of being able to communicate company wide. We are a global business so I am able to communicate with colleagues around the world. Perhaps may want to look into the search or lookup directory because I tried looking up a few co-workers by name & email and was unable to add them, a few other works stated they had this same issue.

Comments: Yammer has been a great tool to efficiently address the need for mass communication on a regular basis. It allows us to publish quick bits of information which is appropriate for a social networking app and not so much for corporate mass mailings. We can still reach a mass audience and employees can even opt in to receive updates. This empowers us to have a channel for communication while avoiding the hassle of preparing a mass mailing and the process that entails. There's great integration with Sharepoint and OneDrive which makes feed embeds and file shares a breeze.

Pros: Allows communication amongst groups using a secure network

Cons: Not as versatile as Facebook.

Overall: We just recently switched to using Yammer. I like that it is a great way to stay in touch yet remain on a secure network. Within our organization we are able to communicate within the larger group or with smaller groups. Notifications let me know when important messages are available. Drop down menus make it easy to use. File sharing is easy and allows collaboration among colleagues. Nice feature for social networking.

If you're familiar with Facebook, then you're all set to use Yammer.

Comments: It took forever to get Yammer approved at the last government agency I worked for. Public record requests are scary, especially in Washington State. If we miss one little documents, there are big fines involved. I think we have the steepest fines in the country. Any social media or messaging tools must be vetted carefully to ensure we can easily store, search, and compile records - and the data we need to pull depends on the request. It could be a request for everything a particular employee has done in a timeframe or anything related to a random topic. After a very long Yammer vetting process, we discovered it was not scary and it wouldn't take much to make the data requests doable.

Functionality wise it's similar to Facebook, which most people use now... even folks who are not comfortable with new technology, so there's really no learning curve. You can open it up with a few guidelines and communications, and it will grow on its own. You don't need a huge implementation effort. People already know the value of social media. Watch it grow into something amazing! I am a fan of your website and would love to help as an LMS expert if you had the biz need for that. Here is some website feedback ¿ it would be cool if we could set up an account on your site. Then we could comment on other reviews and have our information already in the system.

Comments: Yammer is a great way to get all co-workers on the same page and interacting with one another. It's similar to other social media tools so there is really no training at all. We set up groups so we can we keep up to date with specific products based on our responsibilities. We also have groups set up based on location/regions. This is an easy way for managers to talk with all their reps in a quick, easy to use environment. Everyone can get their opinion heard without having to go to a long email string or try and coordinate a phone call meeting. This is great for kicking around troublesome issues and trying to find a resolution. Love it!!

Comments: I used Yammer for a period of about 1 year. During the time that Yammer was here I would say it was very popular. We used it to share pictures, updates from the company, and birthdays/anniversaries The reason we stopped using Yammer was because we changed HRIS' and our new HRIS had this built in so there was really no need for another tool. Overall, while Yammer is awesome, you can get the same features built in to another tool so cannot justify the cost.

Comments: My company used Yammer when I first started as a social networking platform. It was great to learn people's names/faces when I first started and it was cool to see who was new when they joined. They also have a phone app which was nice to stay connected on the go - for example on my way into the office.

Where Yammer falls short is their features. Other than looking at people's names and teams there werent enough other features for our company to continue using it!

Pros: Yammer is feature rich, with all the features you'd come to expect from Facebook included: Create a profile, add a picture, connect with colleagues, news feed, profile walls, add photos, tag photos, alert users with notifications, etc. If you're looking for a social network for your company this one does a decent, though generic, job. Also they have a freemium edition which has most of the functionality you'd need.

Cons: The main challenge with Yammer is getting people to use it. All the benefits of social networking in the company (knowledge transfer, communication, community building) can be real and valuable, but I've seen many attempts to create an active online community fail at my company. I think only with strong executive buy in will Yammer actually be valuable for a company, and all the great features Yammer adds can't fix this. We didn't have that executive buy-in and Yammer, Chatter, Flowdock, all failed to gain traction

Recommendations to other buyers: Ask yourself if you really have exec buy in to push adoption of Yammer (or any internal social network). These networks do not just create themselves - they need ongoing TLC especially from execs.

Pros: If you don't want to communicate with your colleagues in a more traditional Email/Phone/Face-to-Face, at least you can use this to show your boss that you don't hate them.

Cons: There is nothing to dislike. However, there is nothing new to like neither. I doubt that any enterprise is not using some kind of collaboration tools already. Be it group level, department level or even document level, companies are already using some tools to make their daily work easier. Yammer doesn't offer anything new, at least functional-wise.

Recommendations to other buyers: You may feel excited if you never used any collaboration tools and are not on Facebook. If you and your colleague doesn't talk in real life, you won't do it in this neither.

Comments: 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...

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