Microsoft Teams vs Yammer

If you’ve made your way to this blog post, you’re likely asking yourself “when do I use Microsoft Teams vs Yammer?” Well, Yammer is the enterprise social platform which expands your communication to an “Outer Loop” of people within your organization. Use it for organization-wide announcements and engagement, such as HR professional development initiatives. Depending on your organization’s adoption of Yammer, you may find yourself reading Yammer posts periodically or every day.

Teams works best for smaller, close-knit groups. You are much less likely to lose yourself in a large volume of Teams posts, which also means you will get responses from team members faster through Teams.

Check out the table below explaining when to use Teams vs. Yammer as well as when other collaboration tools and platforms may be better suited.
