In Detail

Yammer is the private and fun way to collaborate, plan, and keep up with co-workers.

Just about all of us either use or know about social media networks– Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and more, which are all simple-to-use, popular, and satisfying.

Yammer is just that, a social network but with one huge difference. It’s only for your company and it is private and secure.

In the "Yammer Starter", we explore how Yammer operates and the many exciting ways in which it helps your company and you. This book will also show you how to get more out of Yammer and join in all the contributing and other fun things going on. We will keep it all simple, use lots of helpful illustrations, and include useful examples of how Yammer works. You’ll learn quickly and have fun doing it.

The "Yammer Starter" leads you gently from the activities you do most (connecting with people, sharing content, networking with clients/customers) through the tasks you might do less (administrative, technical).

The "Yammer Starter" introduces you to what Yammer is and how it works. It shows you how to collaborate with the people across your company as well as in specific departments and local workgroups. You will learn how groups are created to get work done more efficiently, how to tap into your company’s “collective brain”, and the many ways Yammer lets us share content. You will be able to master creating networks to communicate with outside clients, customers, vendors, etc. Armed with your smartphones, you will find how all of the power of your company’s social network goes wherever you go. You will also find explanations for all the administrative tasks, how to get additional features in Yammer, and more, for those who need it.

The "Yammer Starter" reveals Yammer, the private and enjoyable way to collaborate, plan, and keep up with co-workers. No matter where you go, your company-wide “intercomm” is right there, and you’ll know how to use it to the best advantage to both the company and your own career!


Get to grips with a new technology, understand what it is and what it can do for you, and then get to work with the most important features and tasks. This book is an introduction to Yammer which uses simple but enjoyable terms, informing you how to get the best out of Yammer while enjoying the process.

Who this book is for

The "Yammer Starter" and Yammer itself requires very little advance knowledge. Most of us have already posted something, sometime on the Internet. Most of us have already used Facebook or one of the other many social media networks, or seen someone using them, and so on. Yammer is that simple. The "Yammer Starter Guide" builds on this basic familiarity, getting you up to speed in using Yammer quickly and easily.
