Hello All,

 

I was recently asked about Yammer and SharePoint integration by a customer and I got some information which I had sent them.   Just for a reference here is that info:



    1. Microsoft will be making announcements about the Cloud service it will provide for Yammer on 11/12/2012

 

    1. There is the possibility to have some integration between Yammer and on-premises SharePoint Farms, like Web Parts and Federated Search or sync of profiles from SharePoint to yammer please read the following for more information https://www.yammer.com/company/sharepoint/

 

    1. At the same time feel free to sign up for an account at www.yammer.com



Then this morning as I was driving in it hit me that if you want on-prem Microblogging, look no further then SharePoint 2013 Newsfeeds, I believe that the SharePoint Product Group is positioning that as the MicroBlogging platform within the enterprise.  Some of the features that you will see:



    • Support for common microblog terms like @Mention or #Tags

 

    • Able to follow people or #Tags

 

    • Using various technologies it would be possible to create a phone app (Windows, IOS, or Droid) This would of course require that mysites are published to the internet.



We are already using this technology at Microsoft and I think it looks great.
