Vimeo Group Helps You To Create Mini Communities Around The Things You Like

image  Vimeo rolled out a new feature called Vimeo Group. It's a way for mini-communities to share videos within Vimeo. Groups makes it easy to get a bunch of contributors together and upload directly into a group, then have conversations entirely contained within that group.

You can add forums, share calendars, photos, and even music with members of the group. And, most importantly, you can take customization to a whole new level with six killer themes.

You can check out some example here : Vimeo Meetup, New York, Knitting, or I Like Baseball!

There may be a confusion between Groups and Channels. Well, the best way to differentiate the two is that Groups is for lots of people to collaborate and contribute and Channels is for individuals to showcase a bunch of videos the way they want. If you think your Channel is better suited as a Group you can convert it to a Group by going to your Channels settings page, but be warned, there is no going back!
