Yammer, Inc., the leader in enterprise social networking, today announced
a new version of its integration with Microsoft SharePoint. The Yammer
SharePoint 3.0 Web Part adds a highly secure, real-time social layer to
the native SharePoint platform, making it social, mobile, and engaging
for enterprise employees. 

    In addition to the features already available in the previous version of
the Web Part, Yammer SharePoint 3.0 includes a host of new functionality
that further enhances SharePoint as a powerful collaboration tool: 

--  Notification alerts help users keep track of important messages,
    drawing users into conversations happening within SharePoint and
    driving more frequent engagement with SharePoint content.
--  Profile sync allows users to import profile information from
    SharePoint into Yammer, eliminating the need to complete two profiles.
    Coupled with unified search, which allows users to simultaneously
    search SharePoint and Yammer content from within SharePoint, profile
    sync makes it easier for users to locate and connect with experts
    within an organization.
--  In addition to posting documents, users can now post other list items
    such as calendar events and tasks from SharePoint to their Yammer
--  Light embeddable feeds make it easy for customers to disperse simple
    versions of the Yammer feed across numerous SharePoint pages.


Yammer for SharePoint supports more responsive, flexible
organizations by enabling workers to collaborate and contribute
regardless of location. By using the Yammer mobile applications for
iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, Android and Windows Mobile, users can stay
connected to important conversations and projects within SharePoint while
on the go. 

    "Adding a social layer to SharePoint drives engagement and enables users
to instantly communicate about critical content and business issues,"
said David Sacks, founder and CEO at Yammer. "With this new, deeper
integration, SharePoint and Yammer work together to provide enterprise
customers with the ultimate collaboration experience."
