Yammer is a social network that’s been going strong since 2008, currently being used by more than 200,000 companies across the earth including Ebay and Ford, allowing corporations to speak to one another as well as inside their own collectives. The CEO and cofounder of Yammer, mister David Sacks, has been rumored to be pushing the deal through before he throws himself a 40th birthday party complete with a “who’s who of A-list tech.”
Given that the source speaking with Business Insider on the subject has noted that the supposed party would take place at the Fleur de Lys mansion in LA, that 18-century costumes are required, and that Snoop Dogg will be presiding over the celebration, we’re going to need a big cup of salt to swallow this one. That said, it’s still quite possible that Microsoft and Yammer are indeed working on a deal between themselves.
