Unison, the work media application, a competitor to Yammer and Podio, has adopted the ‘@mention’ convention so that updates can be directed to the attention of specific people. Ths is a part of the now-dominant open follower model, although I am unsure if Unison allows following of specific people. The norm with work media tools is following of projects you are invited too, a much more corporate variant.
The company has also released new clients for Mac and Windows.
