Have you heard the news? Microsoft to Aquire Yammer – How could Steve Ballmer, CEO, Microsoft say: "Yammer adds a best-in-class enterprise social networking service to Microsoft’s growing portfolio of complementary cloud services."
When Yammer was announced as a possible acquisition for Microsoft, I smiled and giggled inside.

I’ve seen them both go from under the radar apps to departmental apps to enterprise endorsed applications with serious potential for changing the enterprise culture… and they have. Smart Purchase MS!
