Microsoft announced it had acquired the business-themed social networking service Yammer for $1.2 billion last summer, and Yammer became part of Microsoft's Office division. This week, Microsoft offered a small update on how Yammer is doing, along with a change that will affect some Yammer team members.
Microsoft also announced that the 100 Yammer sales employees would be integrated with Microsoft's Office sales teams later this summer. This was expected as Yammer services will begin their own integration with Office 365 around the same time. The first step will allow Office 365 users to replace their SharePoint newsfeed with the one used by the Yammer service. The SharePoint newsfeed will continue to be the default for Office 365 as some businesses may not wish to move to a cloud-based service.
