I wish that Microsoft would create a Yammer training video whenever the interface changed. Yammer works exactly the same for all of us, so it would be nice if we all did not have to reinvent that wheel.
What differs between customers, apart from the masthead they use, is their reasons for using Yammer. This results in very interesting case-studies of the benefits Yammer can bring in that organization. I have already highlighted a few in my earlier post, and I will continue to add those to my collection.
But there are different themes for Yammer videos than demo’s or teasers.
This hilarious video from Virgin Trains tries to stimulate the use of Yammer Groups as opposed to the All Company Network.
By the way, their Yammer launch video (and the case study: getting an alpaca out of the train) is also worth watching!
And this set of 3 videos are about Community Management. They compare a Yammer Group to a party, with guidelines to match. I love the analogy, I love the characters, I love the warning at the beginning, and I want that Bat-device! 🙂
Part 1: Starting Out
Part 2: Managing and Maintaining
Part 3: Promoting and Expanding
Although the look-and-feel may not be suitable for use in every organization, the recommendations at the end of every video are solid and helpful for all of us who have a role in managing communities on Yammer (or other enterprise social networks, of course).
It’s discovering videos like these that make collecting intranet videos so much fun!
