Want to create internal groups inside a group. For example, if technology is one huge group, I want to create internal groups for developers, QAs, interns. I want them all to be under technology. But sometimes I just want to share posts only with developers internal team and not the whole tech team. How do I solve this?

Unfortunately, there are no subgroups within Yammer.

 

You can create a large group, tag a post with #developer then teach people how to 'follow' a tag in order to receive notifications.

 

Or you can utilize the related groups feature of Yammer in order to help surface news from other groups but not notify people.
