Yammer adds badges and Videos
Yammer, the enterprise social network creator, is adding two new pretty impressive features that need noting. First of all there adding in-line videos. You can attach them like you would attach a word document and it will show and play the video in the feed, users can then comment, and like the video. Users can also look threw all the videos that have been uploaded and search for videos by keyword. Yammer has stated that the video player is HTML 5 compatible and will play on the web browsers on the iPhone and iPad. Yammer’s second new features is something called “Praise.” This new application allows you to award other users with badges. Users will be able to see all the badges they have earned, and there co-workers have earned, on their profile pages. These features may not be huge but it supports the fact that Yammer wants to become the Facebook of enterprises and that is becoming less and less like Twitter and more and more like Facebook.
