Right after announcing the new Yammer at TechCrunch Disrupt, I chatted with Yammer CEO, David Sacks, about Yammer's launch of applications – those homegrown at Yammer (e.g., polls, events, and questions) and those built by third parties on Yammer's application platform (e.g., Zendesk, Box.net, Expensify, Crocodoc, Lithium).
The new Yammer platform allows for embeddable dynamic web objects within the Yammer stream. With embeddable objects, Yammer users can fully interact with a message within the actual stream. No need to bounce in-and-out just to input or access information from the application. Do it all within the Yammer feed.
Sacks explains fully as does this post introducing the new Yammer.
