    I'm not using Yammer for a long period now, but when I did, I liked it. It has a great potential to be a content manager and a great company social media tool (communication channel).

    Pros

    Yammer is a complementary tool for sharing information, tutorials and documents inside an intranet. It can complement SharePoint's content management experience for a company. You can create a profile there and interact to other employees in a "social media" like tool. It has many features to create a blog, a tutorial, a wiki and many other things that can help your company to not lose knowledge as the teams keeps changing. New employees can find information and get a smaller learning curve by reading articles that more experienced people may have written on daily tasks or difficult problems that may arise.

    Cons

    I guess its adhesion was too low. In my company many people just don't like to use it because they don't know what is it exactly. It's such a great tool but looks like it was left aside. Maybe Microsoft could do a little marketing to help it grow and be more known by people all around the world. Maybe Microsoft Teams is more important to they...

    The updating features sometimes do lot work.and it usually just becomes a venue used by the same small group

    Pros

    It does a good job of employee engagement and the spread of useful information

    Cons

    This only works if everyone buys into it. It's only useful to those who utilize it

    We currently use Yammer for updating the staff of any upcoming events that they may need to attend.

    We also have formed groups for different tasks on the platform. We then share documents and any information that is needed for the task among each other on the group.

    Cons

    I have not encountered any difficulty while using Yammer as i have been able to download and upload documents with much ease.

    Cons

    I do not like that you have to go through outlook to get into it. If it was stand alone it would be much better. I just believe it is very intrusive the way it is.

    Yammer is a simple and controllable environment to have ideas shared and to connect people. Good for the money though. :-)

    Cons

    This platform seems way out of date and behind the times. It is not easily navigated in the ways that most social media sites are navigated or in the way that other networking sites are.

    Yammer shows promise, especially with the integration into Office 365. The various business style layouts/interface and social networking features are very nice and easy to use.

    Cons

    It really seems like Microsoft isn't supporting Yammer as much as they should be, and a lot of the social aspects seem to be migrating to Teams

    Pros

    Our employer decided to use Yammer as a platform to network and share updates and news across sites globally. It is easy to create and join certain groups and ability to have an internal network. At first launch, people were more proactive in sharing news. I had uploaded pictures from a charity event once and it created a nice conversation to be share how other people are active in their own communities. It is very simple to use and connected to our internal networks.

    Cons

    I haven't had an issue and I think simplicity is best especially for maybe the less tech savvy users.

    Great tool for company wide social gathering.

    Pros

    We have been using Yammer since we added Office 365 to our University and it has been great to see the productivity it has given us. We are easily able to share Ideas and brainstorm. It gives those that would normally seem quiet an equal voice in the task or project.

    Cons

    I wish there were less updates and notifications. They come all day long. Other than that it's a good tool for collaboration.

    Pros

    Social private network for Business - sounds like a great idea. And it is, indeed! Having to work with a distributed team, its great to have a facebook-like hub, with a wide variety of features, where everyone stays connected and private (protected) at the same time. It is extremely easy to use, with a user-friendly UI.

    Cons

    It was a little painful at the very beginning, when we were trying to configure it right. Once we passed that phase - no more issues noticed.

    I like it a lot, we've managed to get the people really involved in sharing what they're doing, problems they face, solutions they implement, their personal and team accomplishments.

    Pros

    First of all, its included with no additional cost on our Microsoft Ofice 365 subscriptions, so no additional expenses. It's very intuitive, nobody needs to be taught how to use it. It has a very simple feature set allowing us to improve our internal collaboration. Thre's now no excuse for not knowing what's happening in the Company. We can easily do simple polls and congratulate our colleagues for any personal o professional accomplishment or event.

    Cons

    Of course, everyone expected it to be a fully functional private facebook, which is not the case, there are a million Faceboo features that don't exist in Yammer, and we don't think we need them at all.
    If only, a better interface for uploading bunches of pictures and organize them in albums, since right now we upload only selected pictures one at a time. Or we share links to sharepoint paths.

    We use this “social media” at work. I like seeing everyone’s posts and having something I use only for work. It’s nice to keep in touch with colleagues from other countries.

    It seems to be pretty public. Everyone in our organization can see what everyone posts.

    Yammer is a private social network which allows users to work together across sectors, content and professional application. The best thing I love about Yammer It provides us mobile application which is really easy to use with the most interesting features. Its features are almost same that we can find in other social networking applications. It is a splendid way for having communication with people in industries very easily.

    Cons

    I would like to say there is really just one con. When I use this application it creates some problem while uploading and downloading but it happens very rarely. Most of the time it works perfect and let us collaborate in a fantastic way.

    Getting users to adopt it and continue to use it while also maintaining profiles in Facebook is a difficult task. There are not enough reasons to use Yammer within the business for it to be worth the effort.

    This is a very simple online collaboration tool. It contains basic functionalities like file sharing, social media-like conversations, etc. It's easy enough to create a group or network and fairly intuitive to use.

    Cons

    Two main cons about this: (1) Microsoft keeps changing Yammer's infrastructure set up which has greatly limited our ability to use this with external networks; (2) file sharing is very limited -- one level, no folders, no metadata.

    Great benefits, it's a wonderful virtual office

    Pros

    Yammer is a terrific way to communicate with people in your company when you don't have a traditional office setting, where employees work from different areas. You can have conversations and get up with people immediately, plus have various "buckets" to divide up work tasks, or have different networks for different departments. Uploaded and downloading is easy, and it's a repository for valuable files. To have a platform where everyone can be on the same page is invaluable. And with smart phones, pushes can allow one to be notified immediately of any update or conversation. Has similar feature to Facebook, so it's easy to learn. Again, a great virtual office!

    Cons

    Honestly, there are very few cons, sometimes it won't let you upload or download items, but that is a rare occasion. Sometimes the search isn't reliable.
