What types of groups are there?

There is a group for everything and if not then you can create one for it. A group can be based around a location, a hobby, or any another area of common interest.

Location based: You could have a group for a school, university, neighbourhood, workplace etc. This means you are trading with people who share a common place of interest with you. 

Hobby/Sport: Do you have a hobby or interest? Then why not join a group for it? This could be anything from skiing to knitting.
