Yammer is a microblogging service that has become popular with NSW DET staff in recent months as a great way of communicating with colleagues. Yammer is like Twitter, except, only people with the same employee email are networked together. In other words, you have to have a verified @det.nsw.edu.au address to join the NSW DET Yammer.

It is clear that a range of people in our organisation are sharing expertises, resources, contacts and generally being supportive of each other. You can upload files, provide professional details and generally participate in the conversation. There are quite a few DPs already joined and it is highly recommended.

You are able to have mobile phone apps and a desktop client to access Yammer. Both have improved my user experience.

Check out Yammer when you have a chance.

UPDATE

There is a DP community HERE and Ben Jones has written a A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO YAMMER (updated) that will help ‘newbies’.
