"No one's going anywhere with you, John. Because they're not crazy."
Jack was convinced that the freighter people were there to save them and so when Locke spoke up against it, Jack knew that he couldn't trust him. They decided to head back to the Beach Camp.

Kate - Hoping to be rescued. Joined Locke's group briefly before being banished.
Sayid - Didn't trust Locke but was still skeptical about the Freighter.
Juliet - Desperate to leave the Island.
Desmond - Although the only witness to Charlie's final warning, Desmond chose to be rescued so he had a better change of seeing Penny again.
Jin - Getting Sun rescued was his main motivation and to ensure their unborn baby would be raised where it was safe.

Vincent - Was taken by Claire initially with Locke's group but was used as a decoy and returned to Jack's group.

"If you want to live, you need to come with me."
Inspired by a vision of Walt, John Locke was determined to stop the group making contact with the freighter. When this was unavoidable, he elected to take whoever was willing with him to the safety of the Barracks.
John Locke - Leader
Sawyer - Had nothing to return to off island.
Ben - Was aware the Freighter people were there for him and needed to be kept away from them.

Claire - Motivated by Hurley's speech about Charlie's warning.
Aaron - Goes wherever Claire goes.
Danielle - Had grown accustomed to living on the Island.
Alex - Followed Ben & Danielle.
Karl - Followed Alex.
The Monster - Was summoned by Ben to attack the freighter mercenaries that were laying siege to the Barracks.
The freighter team sent by Charles Widmore to capture Ben and create a new expedition into the Island's secrets. Some were willing to work with the survivors, others were willing to murder them all.
Daniel - Joined Team Jack.
Miles - Joined Team Jack, traded to Team Locke.

Still living the quiet life in the jungle.
Where is he?!?!
Still living the good life out yonder.
Naomi - John Locke was convinced by 'Walt' that the people on the freighter were there to harm the survivors, so when Naomi managed to make contact with them via the radio, Locke threw a knife into her spine.
Charlie - He was supposedly destined to die. And so when Mikhail decided to blow a hole in the Looking Glass station, Charlie locked himself in the room to save Desmond but not before warning him that the Naomi and the freighter were lying.
Mikhail - As resolute as a villain can get, Mikhail took up a grenade against the window in the underwater station to stop Charlie and Desmond.
Tom - Sawyer didn't take too kindly to being shot on the Raft or Walt being kidnapped so after they ambushed the Others. Sawyer shot him in cold blood.
The survivors of a plane crash are forced to live with each other on a remote island, a dangerous new world that poses unique threats of its own.
A note from me.
One of my favourite things about Lost were the various missions and divisions that took place throughout the series. There were times when all the main characters would be divided into certain groups (by choice or not) with a particular goal that they had to achieve. The larger missions would usually take place in the season finale for the first 3 seasons, whereas the last 3 seasons were more about the divisions that split the survivors apart.
I created these lists to monitor the everchanging group dynamics and the loyalties that evolved over the 6 seasons of the show.
