What is society'?

Answer

Society describes a group of people who share similar values, laws and traditions living in organized communities for mutual benefits. Members of society often share religions, politics or culture.

Perhaps the key word in any definition of society is "organized." Members of society do not have to live in close proximity to one another to be considered living together as long as they share the basic attributes of the society. Similar laws and values help to bring a society together and give it structure. They also help make a society mutually beneficial for its members. People living in a society usually receive some form of security or identification from being part of it, but they also bear the responsibility of living within its structure.
