turn off All Company
Turn off notifications for All Company. Most of the notifications come from groups that are irrelevant, so it's spam. There is no need for 10,000 people to see "Congrats Janine!" when they don't know the poster/receiver/dept/team/.... The fact posts in a group could be sent to the whole company makes me less likely to post, because I don't want to spam people with something totally irrelevant. Worse, I don't think people know how it works.
Would love to see this feature. All company is very spammy and also in languages I can't even read. It's unnecessary for me, and I want the spam gone.
Administrators should have the ability to manage how "All Company" is used, who can post, and how its notifications are sent. One of the biggest complaints we got in previous attempts to roll out Yammer was the e-mail notifications for every joiner. Relying on new end-users to manage their notifications is unreasonable and greatly reduces Yammer's acceptance.

Agree, there should at least be the option to remove notifications for 'all company' in the way you can for any other group you are a member of. Too many notifications is one of the reasons so many colleagues resist using Yammer.
