Event description

Yammer recently launched its ‘Post On Behalf Of’ feature, with the purpose of streamlining the process of internal communicators sharing content on behalf of leaders.

Post On Behalf Of has been met with mixed reactions from Yammer community managers. On one hand, the feature ensures communicators can guarantee a regular flow of updates from leaders. On the other hand, best practice for enterprise social has always been to encourage authentic sharing to encourage a culture of transparency and honesty.

The ‘Draft for’ feature available in Workplace from Facebook also has similar implications.

Please join us for a free session to unpack ‘Post On Behalf Of’, including a panel discussion with industry experts to discuss the pros and cons of the feature update.
