First things first. Your Yammer profile helps coworkers learn more about you and your work experience. And it puts a face to a name. Upload a picture, fill in contact details, and describe your expertise. A Yammer profile aggregates all your profile information, including conversations and files, to make connections and strengthen your organization’s social network.
