Yesterday Yammer announced it was acquired by Microsoft, and will be incorporated in the Microsoft Office Division.
My company (Communited) built a social intranet for one of our clients last year, based on Yammer (functioning as the social “glue”) and Smartsite iXperion cms. During the project we encountered a lot of strange things in the Yammer API.
Will the API be improved now Microsoft owns Yammer? Yammer supposedly will be integrated in Sharepoint; an improved API will be needed for that. I hope we’ll see a lot of improvements in the near future!
