Primary Group refers to a social group that shares close and personal relations with each other whereas a secondary group refers to a social group that are on a lesser level of personal relations than a primary group. Examples:
Primary Group: Our Family, Best Friends - We join them for obvious reasons as they are important part of our life since birth.
Secondary Group: College sports team- Members of such teams are on a less personal level and are mostly concerned with the sports.
