Yammer and How to use it

Yammer is a private social networking tool intended specifically for organizations. Simply put, Yammer is a hybrid of Facebook and Twitter, and it offers another way of connecting and sharing information with the Rose-Hulman community. 

To access Yammer:

  1. Open a web browser and go to the following website:
  2. If you have never used Yammer before, click Sign Up and follow the prompts to set up a Yammer account. If you have used Yammer before, click Log In.  After typing in your Rose-Hulman email address, you will be redirected to a Rose-Hulman Log In page.  Enter your email address and network password.  Then click Sign In.
Yammer can also be accessed via the homepage at My Rose-Hulman. Clicking the “Submit Post/View All” link just above the #Roses feed on the My Rose-Hulman home page will take you to the My Rose-Hulman Yammer page. From there, if you click the Yammer link at the top of that page (next to the thumb), it will take you to the full Yammer site, where the newsfeed is displayed.

Once you are signed in, you can use Yammer to post information through an Update, create a poll for users to take, or make groups to facilitate communication within a specific department or organization. Yammer is also a great tool to use to praise an individual for a job well done. Be sure to include #roses in your post when giving a shout-out to ensure that it appears in the Yammer feed on the My Rose-Hulman home page. You can also read and reply to other posts. 

Please contact if you have questions about Yammer or experience difficulty accessing the tool.
