who exchange messages with each other. Anyone
can start a Group. Anyone can send out a message
to the entire Group or to any individual member
of the Group.
a Group is public anyone can join (no approval
required for membership.) If a Group is private
anyone can ask to join but the Group founder

Group is secret you can only get in if you get
an invite from one of the Group members.
