Each group type has different characteristics as described in the following table.
|Private||A group consisting only of you. For more information, refer to Groups and Personal Zones.|
|Chat||A group consisting of you and only one other user. For more information, refer to Groups and Chat.|
|Members||A group for members only.|
|External users||A group for members and External users.|

Every user has their own personal zone (previously called a private area) which is a private group, automatically created when the user account is created. Also, the user's personal zone automatically has a board called My Uploads.
Users can upload styles to the boards in their personal zone. In Stylezone, a logged in user who clicks on their username, and clicks Profile can view their user page. This includes a Private Board tab, with the My Uploads board, and any other personal zone boards. Users can create as many boards in their personal zone as they wish.
What differentiates the personal zone from other groups is that a user cannot invite people to the personal zone - it is for his or her eyes only. Admin users do not have access to other users' personal zones.
When a user decides they are ready to share a private style inside a group, they can share the style from their personal zone into a board in a group. A copy of the style is kept in the user’s personal zone.
For information about how to add a board to your personal zone, refer to Adding a Private Board.
A chat group is a group with only two users, private to them. A chat group is similar to the situation where two people exchange text messages on their cellphones. Therefore, content shared in the chat group is only accessible to the two users. Users can create as many chat groups as they wish.
What differentiates chats from other groups is that you cannot invite additional people to join the chat - it is a one-on-one conversation. Admin users do not have access to other users' chats. If a user would like to add a third person to a chat, they should create a group between those three people instead.
Similar to the personal zone, if a style is originally uploaded to a chat group, it can be shared to a board within a group. A copy of the style is kept in the chat group.
For information about how to set up a chat group, refer to Adding a Chat Group.
