You got SharePoint Online / Office 365? – Then you have Yammer!
Yesterday Microsoft announced, that Yammer will now be included in ALL Office 365 plans. So no matter how big or small you are, if you have Office 365, you will get Yammer.
Now, this is good news for most companies, especially those who is looking into Office 365 or already is there, and are still wondering what to do about Social. Yammer is pretty neat and easy to use, so this can be a way to get the technology side of a social implementation covered. And that is probably what Microsoft thought.
But, at the same time, Yammer suddenly being available for companies that didn’t have it before, may be challenging if you have already made a bet on standard SharePoint social platform or even something completely different. You shouldn’t have more than one social platform, obviously – so are you able to control this?
