    [Yammer] Social Software Market Keeps Growing
    A number of large and small companies are making big bets on social business through acquisitions like Microsft’s purchase of Yammer and IBM’s extensive acquisition strategy (see IBM's Mike Rhodin on the Convergence of Social Business, Analytics and Commerce ). Rounding out the top 10 were Mzinga, Lithium, Yammer, NewsGator, and VMware. I guess Microsoft was feeling left out so they picked up Yammer.

    [Yammer] Beware: BYOA May Rival BYOD as IT Issue
    Yammer got some its early users this way. There has been a lot of discussion about the BYOD movement (Bring Your Own Device) where people are getting their own smart phone and/or tablet.

    The acquisition is unlikely to have much impact in the short term, although it may give Yammer an advantage when negotiating with some enterprise buyers through their new link to Microsoft.
