A user group is an online community of people with similar interests. It is used to share ideas, ask and solve questions, and take advantage of the rich collection of resources that people in the group have.

Many have international memberships. Others are more local and deal with local issues or are focused on the needs of a particular community.

Many can be found on group hosting services such as Yahoo or Google. Others can be found with search engines.

One can participate in a group by e-mail, or by reading the discussion on the group web page, or both. Group discussions are usually searchable.
