Yammer on Mobile Devices
Hi all, this post is really just for awareness about some fairly new Yammer content that was recently published. Our documentation team has prepared a poster for Yammer on Mobile Devices, which covers both applications and their features that we currently offer for mobile devices, but also has a nice...

Uploading File Attachments to Yammer
Working with attachments to message postings in Yammer has been something that I've had a few questions on over time and just recently had a chance to take a look at it. I decided to blog about it only because there appears to be such paucity of information around folks that have actually done this...

Using Yammer Open Graph in .NET - Part 2
In the first part of this series - http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2014/05/29/using-yammer-open-graph-in-net.aspx - I described how to create a Yammer Open Graph object (OGO). In this posting I'll explain how to create a new post in the newsfeed for the OGO, as well as read all messages...

Using Yammer Open Graph in .NET - Part 1
I've already written about using the Yammer APIs from a .NET client application here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2013/10/05/using-the-yammer-api-in-a-net-client-application.aspx. This post is the next logical step in that journey, which is working with Yammer Open Graph items from...

Enhancing the Yammer Search Results and Messages Samples and Deserialization
Just as kind of strange coincidence, I was in working on some Yammer message JSON goo and realized that there were actually a couple of other important data elements that comes down in the JSON payload when you get a collection of messages from REST. That includes both querying for messages directly...

Integrating Yammer and SharePoint 2013 Search Results
This post is in response to a question I get pretty frequently when talking about Yammer. The question that many folks want to know is "how can I crawl my Yammer content from SharePoint?" Well, unfortunately you can't, and I have no trick up my sleeve to show you otherwise today to say...

Using Impersonation with the Yammer APIs
One of the things that isn't particularly well known about the Yammer APIs is that its OAuth infrastructure does support a form of impersonation (at least that's how I describe it). This can be extraordinarily useful when you need to access data on behalf of another user and do so within the...

Some More Advice When Using the Yammer APIs with .NET
I wrote this post a little while back here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2013/10/05/using-the-yammer-api-in-a-net-client-application.aspx , and I think I'm going to have to fall on the sword just a bit because I have some code in there that I think has people kind of turned sideways...

What You Must Know if Using Azure Active Directory for SSO with Yammer
I posted a while back regarding how to configure Yammer and Azure Active Directory (AAD) together so that you could use it for single sign on to your Yammer network - http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2014/01/08/using-azure-active-directory-for-single-sign-on-with-yammer.aspx . There is an...

Using Azure Active Directory for Single Sign On with Yammer
This is a pretty interesting topic that I think is going to be gaining momentum moving forward. As many of you know, when you create a new o365 tenant you automatically get an Azure Active Directory (AAD) instance provisioned for you at the same time. For those of you who have purchased an Enterprise...

Creating a Yammer-Centric Security Setup for SharePoint 2013
Okay, I’m going to preface everything in this post by saying what I’m going to be describing is not what you would consider the most secure SharePoint web application in the world. If you are working with sensitive content then this is probably (but not absolutely) NOT the best solution for...

Using the Yammer API in a .NET Client Application
UPDATE 12/17/2013: The authentication process Yammer uses to issue an access code changed recently. If you have been getting a 404 error when executing the 3rd line of code previously described below to get the token, then read the updated step 3 below and/or grab the updated code attached to this post...

Use Social Tools to Tell me What You Want to See Here Next
Hey folks, I decided to try something completely new and different (on a few different fronts). I mostly blog about topics that I've seen come up with customers, or requests from folks that I know at work. I thought I'd give a go at harnessing the power of social media though to get ideas and suggestions...
