We’re excited to announce that we’re launching a new feature called Leaderboards. Leaderboards gives users access to statistics about their network activity. The Leaderboards include:
- Most Liked Members: Top 10 users whose messages have received the most ‘Likes’
- Most Replied to Members: Top 10 users whose messages have received the most replies
- Members with the Most Posts: Top 10 users with the most public messages posted
- Most Replied to Threads: Top 10 threads with the most replies
- Threads with the Most Participants: Top ten threads with the most participants
The feature is intended to give users deeper insight into the activity in their Yammer network. Leaderboards will be accessible from the left navigation panel, and users will be able to look at the Top 10 lists over varying spans of time, including the past 24 hours, seven days, 28 days and all time.
So what does it take to rise to the top of the Leaderboards?
We took this question to some of the most active Yammer users and gathered some tips. Here’s what they had to say about how to be engaging on Yammer:
- Be resourceful. Share information that is helpful to others.
- Ask people questions about themselves.
- Call upon people’s strengths. Give them an opportunity to demonstrate their expertise.
- Ask questions that allow people to express elements of their personality.
- Welcome new members when they join the network.
- Recognize people for their accomplishments.
- When posting a question, @ mention the experts.
- Create a weekly discussion series on Yammer (example: What I learned Wednesdays, Food for Thought Thursdays) where you initiate a different discussion at the same time each week. Use a topic or hashtag to categorize the series (e.g., #foodforthoughtthursdays).
As with most new features, we’ll be rolling out Leaderboards in phases, so if you don’t have it yet, you can expect to see it very soon.
