Yammer is a private social network; collaborate securely across departments, geographies, content and business applications.

"Yammer is a social network much like Twitter or Facebook, but it differs in a couple of key ways. First, not everyone can join Yammer. You have to have an email address associated with a company or institution to join the network, thus there are no extraneous postings that are unrelated to the people who you work with professionally. The second difference is Yammer is a professional network and all of the postings are intended to allow collaboration between people in the company to work on projects or help solve various issues. There are several features of Yammer; the ones used in this course were the ability to create a private group, chat with various members, and see who is online. Live feeds, the use of polls, the announcements feature, the embedding of articles, and the response features to postings were also utilized." - Victoria Raish (http://elearnmag.acm.org/featured.cfm?aid=2517042)
