A group of human beings sharing mutual interests, characteristic relationships, institutions and shared culture that gives them a distinct identity separating them from the other groups is known as the society. They interact with each other, share a common geographical and have a sense of identity. They are connected to each other by a common set of values, attitudes and norms. It is made up of people, institutions, systems, groups and networks. It can also be described as the totality of social relationships among humans.
