Let’s consider the situation where you have a JomSocial based website of School. Now, you would like to categorize users into Students, Teachers and other Staff. But it should be such that the profile fields, templates, privacy settings, access controls, default avatars with watermark, default Joomla user types, JS toolbar accessibility and a lot of other configuration settings can be set differently for all the categories.
