Enterprise social network Yammer has grown to nearly 8 million registered users since it was acquired by Microsoft one year ago today, Yammer co-founder and exec David Sacks said in a blog post this morning.
“The continued boom in Yammer’s growth is validation that enterprise social represents an important trend in the way people want to share, learn and connect at work, similar to how they’re interacting in their personal lives,” Sacks said in a separate press release.
The holidays are a great time for businesses to show their customers, partners and employees how much they’re appreciated, and with Skype you don’t have to blow a ton of budget in the process. On Tuesday, Skype’s Workplace Blog listed four ways to easily and inexpensively spread holiday cheer.
One is with video messages, which you can record and send to any of your contacts. During the holidays, consider assembling your team to sing an original seasonal song, recite a funny holiday poem – or just thank people for their contributions to your business.
