We’re working on a simple Rails app that solves a common problem for
groups of people. It’s not yet another social network, tough.
The thing is that we’re trying to find an appropriate word, in
English, to refer to “group”. We wouldn’t like to use “group”, because
it often reminds us of discussion groups, which has nothing to do with
the app we’re building. So, we’ve been thinking of such words as:
I’m Brazilian, so my native language is Portuguese. I certainly have a
feeling about which of these words are the most appropriate for the
matter, but I’m pretty sure that most of you, native English speakers,
can point out the best choice of word better than myself.
The application can be used by people of all ages. But we’d prefer to
focus on youngsters. So, we’re looking for a word that best describes
“group” in youngsters parlance. Can any of you give me a tip on that?
BTW, the application will be released shortly and will be free. I’ll
send you the link and I hope it will also be useful for you.
If that’s too off topic for the list, please accept my apologies. I
was wondering if I really should send the message in the first place
till I realize that the only way to know was actually sending the email.
