Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Like, reply, and share, part of Yammer 2016 Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] One of social media's advantages over email is the ability to quickly show that you appreciate that someone has written, or that you agree with what they have said without adding one more item to their inbox, and you do that simply by clicking on like, just as you would, for example on Facebook, so here's Tammy Marley-Cox's post that she's focusing this week on strengthening connections in the not-for-profit community, and I'm like yes. Click like, and I've liked this. If I change my mind, I can stop liking this message or unlike it.
There isn't simply a way to unlike it to begin with. You can like or not like, but you can't say I don't care for this message whatsoever. Second possibility is I would like to reply to this message, so I'm going to click reply to this message, and I'm going to say, tell me more, is this for Landon North America, or focusing on New York City Landon, because Tammy's in New York, so it could be mostly focused on where she is.
I could also add other people into this conversation. If I believe that this is something that Victor would like to know about, for example I could choose him, or if I think maybe this is something Steve should know about, so I could add other people if I wished to notify them. I could also attach something if I wish, a file for example, or an image. I'm simply going to post this though, and there's my reply. Notice that it is inset directly below Tammy's original post.
If I wanted this to appear in another group, for example, if we have a group that is focused on non-profit business and non-profit customers I might wish to share this, and when I click share I have the ability to post this in a group, or to send it via private message, which we will speak about later, but here are the groups that exist. This includes all the public groups, even groups I'm not a member of, so if I felt this was tied into a possibility for a flagship event I could add this to the flagship events group, or if I want to make sure that we have adequate IT support for it I could post it to the IT support group, and then I should say something about why I'm posting this item to the group, because right now it's in all company, so why specifically am I posting this, and notice what I'm posting is tell me more, and then someone can click here to view the entire conversation.
When I'm ready, I click share, and this would share this with the IT support group. So, three choices here, like and unlike, reply to the person right here, or share, which allows me to either post to a group, or to post a private message, perhaps to Tammy, perhaps to someone else.
