Microsoft has decided to disband the Yammer Community Team, a group responsible for promoting the use of the Yammer social network for businesses. This move has caused concern among Yammer’s user base, as the team was seen as instrumental in assisting companies to implement and utilise the platform effectively. The decision forms part of a broader trend within Microsoft to integrate Yammer more fully into its Office 365 suite, a move which began in 2014. However, critics suggest that this could lead to the platform losing its distinctive qualities that set it apart from other Microsoft products. Microsoft has reiterated its commitment to Yammer, stating that the platform remains a core part of its product offering. The company has also confirmed that support for Yammer users will continue, albeit in a different form, with a new team being formed to handle customer queries and support.
