Enable users to create and manage their own 'groups'. Each
group can have subscribers, and maintains a group home page
where subscribers communicate amongst themselves. They do
so by posting the usual node types: blog, story, page, etc.
Groups may be selective or not. Selective groups require
approval in order to become a member, or even invitation -only
groups. Groups and content can also be private.
There are lots of preferences to conﬁgure groups as you need.
