Keeping content in a central location is the key to Yammers success.

#8 Yammer conversations are Private.
A great feature when you use yammer is that all conversations are private and not public facing.
Channels are by invitation only, allowing organisations to control who sees what and when.
Channels allow users to be added when needed and removed after their engagement is no longer required during certain stages of a project, for example.
#9 Yammer allows for self-management
Yammer conversations are stored in a feed and are able to be accessed as and when time permits for users. This provides a sharp increase in effective time management. You can use Yammer the same as Facebook with the familiar ‘like’ button under each post. This is an effective way to actually manage which posts have been read by the user, by only selecting ‘like’ once a user has read/actioned the contents of the post.

Look for your own posts by simply adding your name along with a search term. Look for posts related to a topic by adding the topic name in the search.
