Yammer is a private platform for enterprise social networking. Originally developed as an internal communication system, the site allows for business users to easily collaborate with one another to meet business needs. Users are identified by their email domains and connected to others within a network.

You can use Yammer to:

  • Post relevant announcements and events
  • Manage group projects
  • Manage private messages
  • Keep up to date with work relevant projects and news
  • Gain valuable input and feedback
  • Post files and allow editing of documents
