Councils have invested in internal communication as a means of increasing organisational effectiveness. In 2009, Devon county council piloted "business networking" – using social software with Facebook-style functionality to enable collaboration, file-sharing and improved communication. Meanwhile, the same council's pilot using Yammer was really taking off. In this primary phase, Yammer is used to bounce ideas around, share links, ask for advice and make suggestions.
