Thanks Wictor. Yeah man, the initial response was rather unsettling. Having said that, after a lengthy discussion on the FB MVP group, everything calmed down and we have a great conversation.
Active ESN users have great experiences with the toolset inside of Yammer, as its not a bad platform, and if implemented with the correct strategy, it works. This can be said for any ESN product.
AND yes, when the SharePoint product group reshuffle happened, it fixed what we complained about. I remember back in 2013 at the summit when Bill Baer asked for commentary on specific items, it was the beginning of engineering reaching out to us for advice as we work with the tech on a daily basis.
I am hopeful that the same transparency and enthusiasm we saw from Jeff, Dan, Chris, Adam and team at last years summit will be applied to that of Yammer.
