Yammer is an enterprise social networking service used for private communication within organizations. Access to a Yammer network is determined by a user's Internet domain so that only individuals with approved email addresses may join their respective networks. The service began as an internal communication system for the genealogy website - Geni.com, and was launched as an independent product in 2008. Microsoft later acquired Yammer in 2012, and it is included in all enterprise plans of Office 365 and Microsoft 365. In 2023, Yammer changed its name to Viva Engage.
