Society can be defined as a group of people, who share a common economic, social and industrial infrastructure. Society is an organization of people who share a common cultural and social background. The term Society is the most fundamental one in sociology. It is used hi very wide sense: Commonly it is to referred to members of specific groups.
For example the word society is used to refer to some specific institution like, Brahmo Samaj, Arya Samaj, etc. But in sociology, the term “Society” refers not to group of people but to the complex pattern of the norms of interaction that arise among them. People are only the agents of social relationship, they are regarded as things.
A society is intangible, it is a process rather than a thing, motion rather than structure. Society is a web of social relationships, the pattern of norms of interaction by which the members of the society maintain themselves.
