Ready Set Yammer

 

Yammer Etiquette

Yammer Etiquette

Yammer can be a very useful virtual communication tool; however, the challenge for users is to remember that it’s a professionals setting. Because it looks and feels like other social networking sites, it can be easy to transfer bad Facebook or Twitter habits to Yammer. Some tips to help avoid this:

  • Proofread your posts. They don’t need to be rhyming couplets, but grammatical errors don’t impress anyone, particularly in a work setting.
  • Get a feel for your network and the kind of language that’s appropriate. Some networks may be relatively casual, but others might not be. Until you see someone else use one, resist the urge to pepper your posts with smiley faces.
  • Be aware of your commenting and “liking” habits. In the same way it isn’t appropriate to drop in on conversations in an office, it also isn’t appropriate to get involved with threads that don’t pertain to you.
  • Remember that public posts within the network are written records. If you’re upset about an issue, wait five minutes before posting.
  • Private messages are a great way to communicate with a specific co-worker, but if you find a conversation veering away from work, take it to a personal social networking site.
