Interest fields enable you to organize contacts into groups (e.g., to denote subscription preferences). They are found on a subscription management web form that allows contacts to opt in to or opt out of (depending on how the form is designed) your organization's various email communications.
Interests are also useful for creating specific message groups for other items as well, such as people to invite to an event, people that purchased a product, or perhaps people in your association with a certain status or title (e.g., executives).
One special quality of an interest is that a corresponding target group is automatically created along with it. This makes it easy to use the interest as the basis for a target group in a message.
