The CiviCRM documentation provides a good rundown of groups and tags (and the best way to utilize each): http://docs.civicrm.org/user/en/4.6/organising-your-data/groups-and-tags/.

One of the great things about Groups is the option to use Smart Groups that automatically add contacts with certain attributes to a specific group, rather than you needing to remember to add each individual one.
