Yammer.com is an enterprise productivity solution that uses a publish-and-subscribe model to improve communication while reducing email overload.

“Yammer is a tool for making companies and organizations more productive through the exchange of short frequent answers to one simple question: ‘What are you working on?’ ” [Yammer]

What you can do with the service:

  • Publish status updates, ideas, news, links, and questions without cluttering up inboxes.
  • Subscribe to the people and topics that are relevant to you.
  • Reply to status updates and have discussions.
  • See what people are actually working on and talking about.
  • Search archived messages as a knowledge-base.
  • Find people in the directory to contact them or learn more about them.

The basic service is free. The ability to Claim and administer the company network is fee-based.

This is a nice solution for the business sector, where presence updates and online messaging can be limited to just within the company network.

Plurk.com – Your Life, On the Line June 12, 2008

Plurk.com is a service similar to Twitter and/or Jaiku, but with a twist: it incorporates a visual timeline of “plurks”.

“What is Plurk? A really snazzy site that allows you to showcase the events that make up your life, and follow the events of the people that matter to you, in deliciously digestible short messages called plurks.” [Plurk]

A mobile version of the site can be found at plurk.com/m. You can use this URI on your mobile device for plurking and reading plurks.

I find Plurk more similar in concept with Jaiku, especially with the replying (commenting) on Plurks (Jaikus).

The service still does not have a standalone client (yet), but it looks like a lot of Twitter and Jaiku users are already trying out Plurk.
