Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Yammer

As a part of Microsoft 365 subscription Yammer is using across the whole organization.
Marketing, HR and some other departments are not into another "team messagers", so through Yammer all departments can be notified with a important / interesting information. Yammer provides an effective way of communication in both small and large groups of people at one time. It's kinda like a company's "Facebook"
  • Office365 content is shared with others
  • Communication across the whole organization
  • Acccess to private content
  • Outlook integration
  • UI is old
  • UX is not perfect
  • Mobile app is not user friendly
  • No more urgent HR emails across the whole company
  • You're into the whole organization's rhythm
Yammer created very important and reliable social network across the whole company. We used to have MS SharePoint, but since Yammer became available via Office 365 we moved to Yammer.

IBM Connections is difficult to maintain + costs are higher.
Facebook for Business is a good alternative, but not every company wants to share information with FB.
It has no impact on staff performance and even evades our attention. Tech staff is using different apps, so this is yet another messager for them - almost total ignorance of using this solution.
