What is a group and what is a forum? What is the difference?

Community

Think of a group like an encyclopedia and forums like the individual topics or entries. For example, we have groups like First Time Mothers and First Time Fathers. A group connects people through their shared interests and encompasses a wide variety of topics (a.k.a. forums). A forum allows people to interact through discussing issues and sharing experiences and ideas. Each group can contain multiple forums.
