One of the hardest concepts community members had difficulty understanding was the differences between Groups and Spaces when we launched our internal Jive community. I had many people request a space for a project, a club and other various "non-space" appropriate entities. I found myself getting frustrated explaining the differences and still getting the "Uh-huh?" face from the people I was trying to enlighten.
So, late one night, I came up with this explanation and it has worked miracles explaining the differences and benefits of a group and space.
Hope this helps others in their adventures with launching Jive!
