Newsfeed or Yammer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're looking at a rollout of Office 365 Enterprise. We currently use SharePoint 2010 Enterprise but have not really made use of MySites. Wondering whether Newsfeed or Yammer is the better way to go. We've got about 40 internal users, many of whom work offsite. So, was thinking one of these options might give us platform for these offsite team members to better connect. We also have potentially a number of other external users in our board members and volunteers who might make use of our portal in the future.

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

  • At this point, Yammer. The Newsfeed is there for "legacy" purposes at this point. Since you're just starting out, you won't have to transition any workflows or transition users from the Newsfeed to Yammer.

    There won't be any further service improvements to the Newsfeed, all of the social features will be geared towards Yammer. There will be bug fixes for the life cycle of the product to the Newsfeed, of course.
