If you read my last but one post, you ‘ll have read the list of Australian CEOs that Twitter. Here’s a corporate version of Twitter called Yammer:

What’s happening at your company?
Share status updates with your co-workers.

Your Network

Yammer is a tool used to communicate, share, and stay in touch with others in your organization through the exchange of short frequent messages. These messages are aggregated into a feed that is private to your network. Only others with confirmed email addresses from your organization can view and post messages to your feed.

Your Yammer network name is the hostname of your email address. For example, you can only log in to the Geni Yammer network if you have verified that you have a valid @geni.com email address. Once you have verified that you have a valid email address from your organization, you can log in to that network to view and post messages.

  1. Yammer really interests me.
    I wonder at the fact they have nothing on their site about security and how they guarantee that only people on your email network are able to access your posts.
    It would be great if they could have functionality to invite clients & business partners with restricted access (eg. to certain hash tags).
    Will definitely keep an eye on Yammer :o)

  2. I agree with Julie: we need more information. At $1 per employee per month, we’d been spending plenty and would want some more information.

    What about companies under regulatory regimes that mandate retaining all important information? There’s no way to get that information from Yammer.

    As well as the confidentiality information Julie mentioned, we’d need some guarantees about availability.

    And, if you’re trying to make nice with companies, it would be good if there was some mechanism for companies to claim back networks not started by them.
