Thanks Jennifer are you able to provide me examples of how it is being used?

Yammer is used for all of our teams as a social network. We have Employee resource groups, communities for centers of excellence such as the Power Platform, fun groups such as Pets or IT innovations, etc. We have Teams, Slack and Yammer and we use all avenues. 

Yammer is definitely our most active and utilized among the company.

Yammer is a good choice however there are other options too such as slack, Microsoft team, workspace

Try different options whichever suits most people should go ahead with that.

You can create something based on SharePoint. I've implemented it in the past for something similar and it worked out pretty well.

To build an internal community, I felt there are two platforms that will be great to go hand in hand.

One is documentation software which perhaps a wiki will be great, to retain lessons and projects within the organization.

Another will be discussion software, similar to a forum, Discord or Slack that allows people to observe and monitor discussions, so be able to follow the discussion and made their own conclusion.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.30%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.53%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%
