Back in August, I wrote a post about Yammer called ‘HR Guide to Using Yammer‘.  I decided to try using Yammer in my human resources department with a handful of people.  I was hoping to learn whether people would use it and if not, what the barriers were.

I began by asking each person to participate so that I would have a group willing to try it with me.  We all signed up and began to use it.  It was slow to catch on, even with a group of people who agreed to try it.  After a few weeks, we had abandoned it altogether.

Fast forward to November.  Following a training course offered to some of the employees, more employees began to sign up for Yammer.  Now, I see that the interest is starting to pick up.  I don’t see that it is being used for “work” much yet, but I think people are still in the networking/getting to know each other phase.

I’m curious, do you use Yammer?  What are the pros and cons?  Please leave a comment with your opinion and/or any tips on using Yammer successfully.

Thanks.
