Yammer releases new desktop client for Twitter-like business app

Yammer updateYammer is a Twitter-for-business style application that basically lets users communicate only with other users that share the same private email domain. For example, I could setup a Yammer network where I could keep up to date with other users.

The company recently launched an updated version of its desktop client. Like the previous client, the new application is still built on Adobe AIR, which means it can run on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. But the new version includes a new, brighter look plus the ability to search colleagues, tags, and groups, the ability to open new threads in new windows, and the option of switching between multiple Yammer accounts.

There's also a built-in spellchecker.

Yammer is available for free, although companies that want more control over their networks can sign up for paid accounts.
