User Segments are dynamically assigned User collections. If a Segment can be well-defined with the available criteria, the administrative overhead of User management can be greatly reduced. On top of this, you can define personalized experiences for User Segments created at the Site scope, ensuring that Users see the most relevant content in your Site.
