Groups consist of several people who work together to talk about and blog on a subject of interest.
Every Group has a blog to allow every member to write about the Groups’ subject. Groups also contain customizable news feeds so you can stay up-to-date on breaking news. Comment on blog entries to start intriguing debates.

Note: Anyone can read a group, but to participate you must be a member.
Joining a Group
If you don’t want to be an administrator, you can still contribute to a Group. Post blogs as often as you like. The Group’s administrators are available to act like advisers or editors.
Creating a Group
If you create a Group, you have the luxury of being in charge. You can appoint co-editors (administrators), and you remain the boss. You decide who can join and you can manage anything posted in the Group.
Becoming an administrator of a Group you join
If you want to have a more active role in a Group, you can contact one of the Group’s administrators and request to be promoted to administrator status. This gives you the power to help manage blog entries and approve other members. Click on an administrator’s name and ask to be promoted to administrator status and be sure to tell them why or how you plan to help out.
