In the old days when I wanted to connect with my friends in Europe, Canada and Australia in real time, I had to set up a chat room and email them the time for our virtual meeting.
In today's Web 2.0 world you can connect with your friends with blogs, wikis, chat, or any of the popular social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace.
Grou.ps is a platform that tries to combine most of the social communication features mentioned above in one page.
"Choose your template and pick all the modules that you want (wiki, blogs, photos, links etc). And get your group web site without waiting.", reads the main page of the service. See how it works for yourself.
