TYPES OF GROUP BOUNDARIES
Formal group boundaries determined by pre-determined criteria such as being accepted as a fraternity member or a Rotarian. They may be maintained and group members are identified by such things as a particular mode of dress, an unusual handshake, or a union card.
Informal group boundaries are determined by non-specific criteria as in school peer group. Members and non-members boundaries are informal when a group develops around a temporary activity such as playing basketball or meeting with friends.
