What is the difference between a group and a site?

You’ll want to think about your communication goals before deciding whether it is best for you to use a group or site to share information on SAH Commons.

If you want to communicate with colleagues who share interest in a research topic or issue, you may want to start or join a group. Groups facilitate interaction between group members, since members can participate in discussions, collaborate on docs, and share files. Participation in groups is limited to SAH members. Learn more about groups.

If you want to communicate to a broader public audience, you may want to build a site. Sites function like websites, are by default open to the public, and are indexed by Google. Sites allow you to communicate beyond the SAH membership. Use sites to craft a professional online presence, circulate information, reach a broader audience, and posting blogs that are visible to members and nonmembers. Learn more about sites.
