Written by Anusha Saive

Groups are everywhere! While we only had real groups some years back, today there’s a complete shift and we mainly come across virtual groups! Talk about a fan club, there are thousands of virtual groups but you would not see many in the real world!

So, why this shift? Well, people prefer connecting with each other virtually, because then they are not bound because of time or place. They are free to talk whenever they want and it has made our life way easier.
