So it’s been announced on the Office365 Roadmap. Therefore it’s official. Soon, when you create a Yammer Group it will automatically create a SharePoint Site !
The goal is to turn the conversation into a reliable business class documented solution. You can continue to discuss projects in the very social sense, permitted by Yammer. However you will naturally gain the document library and process driven capabilities of a SharePoint Site.
Stay tuned for official Preview date.
Yammer Tip – Microsoft is rolling out External Sharing in Yammer as a new Office 365 feature that will allow users to create a external group and include external users probably from outside the company. You can create a Public External group or a Private External group in Yammer and then add external users to the entire group instead of the conversions or sending private messages.
