There are many different kinds of social groups in the United States: clubs, fraternities, gangs, counterculture groups, online communities, etc. Identify a social group that you are part of, and then discuss which of the social control mechanisms (mentioned in section 8.4 of the textbook) are applied in your group. Why do you think these forms of social control are effective?
