Never Mind Microblogging, SharePoint Needs to Support Plain Old Blogging

In case you missed it, Microsoft bought Yammer. We await the results of this acquisition within SharePoint (we might be waiting some time), but it is certainly a clear admission that SharePoint doesn’t currently do "social" very well.

Microsoft's Acquisition of Yammer Can be a Win-Win Situation

The deal is real -- Yammer has agreed to sell itself to Microsoft … but it’s the rest of the story and the analysis that’s really interesting.

The Wall Street Journal is now confirming that Yammer has agreed to sell itself to Microsoft  for US$ 1.2 billion. They cite their source as a “person familiar with the matter” who could be anyone, maybe even Yammer founder and CEO David Sacks.
