Humans are social beings, and pretty much all works of fiction portray the social lives of them or [[HumanAliens reasonably similar entities]].

Thus, tropes about social interaction, social behaviour and social structure are so common that we don't list them all here individually. Instead, see the indexes to the right.

Below follows two kinds of tropes:
* A) Those that are about social interaction/behavior/social structure without fitting any of the indexes to the right, and
* B) those that ''do'' fit at least one of those indexes, but contain a special focus on social structure... or lack thereof.
