Social kinds are heterogenous. As a consequence of this diversity, some authors have sought to identify and analyse different kinds of social kinds.

These SCS-kinds are united by the function of enabling computations that occur distributed across social groups. Examples of such SCS-kinds are reimbursement form, US Dollar bill, chair of the board.
