  3. 3. What is a community?
  4. 4. A problem with history This problem was at the heart of the development of sociology. (Fernback, 2007; Studdert, 2005) The discussion about communities can be traced back to 11th century BCE biblical prophets. (Wellman, 1999)
  5. 5. A relative conceptThere’s a vast array of uses for the term, ithas become common use and is hard topin academically. (Wellman, 1999; Preece, 2000; Thurlow,Lengel & Tomic, 2004; Studdert, 2005)“the African-American community”“the European community”“the gay community”“the village community” (Thurlow, Lengel & Tomic, 2004)
  6. 6. Are they territory-defined?Several definitions involve locality: the idealcase is often seen as a small village. (Thurlow,Lengel & Tomic; Wellman, 1999)
  7. 7. Are they territory-defined?Hamman (1999, Para 4) defines community as:1. A group of people,2. who share social interaction3. and some common ties between themselves and other members of the group and who share an area for at least some of the time (Hamman, 1999, Para. 4).
  8. 8. Identity and belongingSocialization and a sense of identity andbelonging is central to community,sometimes described as ‘the third place’.(Hamman, 1997)
  9. 9. Disappearing Communities?There’s been a sense of community lossfor centuries, can be tracked for over2000 years in the western culture,including some of its most prominentintellectuals. (Tonnies, 1974; Wellman, 1999; Evans, 2004)
  10. 10. Community vs. individualThe individual-society dilemma has beencentral to the development of westernsociety.Individualism is an important factor in theweakening of communities. (Willard & Fields, 1991)
  11. 11. They are in flux!Communities are changing, notdisappearing. (Wellman, 1996; 1999)
  12. 12. Defining Community“I define ‘community’ as networks ofinterpersonal ties that provide sociability,support, information, a sense of belongingand social identity.”(Wellman, 2001, p. 228)
  13. 13. Leonie D, 2008
  14. 14. Online CommunitiesEarly developers of computer networksforesaw a happy life empowered by onlinecommunities based on interest.(Licklider & Taylor, 1968)
  15. 15. Online CommunitiesThe computer as a communication device (Licklider & Taylor, 1968).“In a few years, men [and women] will be able to communicate moreeffectively through a machine than face to face” p. 21).On-line interactive communities: “In most fields they will consist ofgeographically separated members, sometimes grouped in small clustersand sometimes working individually. They will be communities not ofcommon location, but of common interest.” (Licklider & Taylor, 1968, p.37).
  16. 16. Online CommunitiesThe computer as a communication device (Licklider & Taylor, 1968).“…telecommunication will be as natural an extension of individualwork as face-to-face communication is now. The impact of that, willbe very great- both for the individual and on society. First, life will behappier for the on-line individual because the people with whom oneinteracts most strongly will be selected by commonality of interests andgoals rather than accidents of proximity” (p. 40).
  17. 17. Internet alienatesSome people saw internet communicationas a threat to socialization.(Kraut et al, 1996; Homenet Group, 1998)
  18. 18. Online helps localOther people propose that onlinecommunities can strengthen localcommunities.(Blanchard & Horan; Evans, 2004; Hampton, 2007; Xie, 2008)
  19. 19. SupportVirtual communities can allow people toengage in positive relationships andsupportive forms of organization.(Rheingold, 2008)
  20. 20. ...“But because of your guidance, constant companionship and true friendship, I have learned that life is full of choices, life is beautiful that life is all about learning to love what’s there. I’m really thankful to all of you, you brought me reasons to smile, I’ve been seeing myself always smiling,Bernardette San Jose, 2009 laughing my heart out and alive again.”...
  21. 21. Defining Online Community “A Virtual community is a group of people whomay or may not meet one another face to face,and who exchange words and ideas through themediation of computer bulletin boards andnetworks.” a certain (loose) social contract certain (eclectic) interests usually a geographically local focus often a connection to a much wider domain (Rheingold, 2008, p3.)
  22. 22. Communities of Practice Ellis, Oldridge and Vasconcellos (2004) establish three different types of online communities according to their rationales and agendas: Communities of practice, focused on the learning process for developing professional skills, networked virtual communities, based on a common interest, and virtual community networks, created on the basis of existing proximate networks
  23. 23. Online Social NetworksThe most recent form of online communityis user-centric shaped. Their focus is themaintenance of previous offline basedrelationships.(Beer, 2008; Boyd & Ellison, 2008; Stefanone & jang, 2008)
  24. 24. Social NetworksA way of describing social organization Networks, not communities (Wellman, 1996)Network theory Graph theory Nodes & Links

  32. 32. Online social constructsMore than asking wether onlinecommunities are true communities, weshould focus on studying how people arecreating meaningful social constructsonline. (Fernback, 2007)
  33. 33. Blending worldsAs the Internet is now embedded in ourregular lives, the distinction between onlineand offline communities dissolves.(Haythonrwaite & Hagaar, 2005; Xie, 2008)... “it is when technological changes becomepervasive, familiar and boring that they affectsocieties the most”.(Wellman, 2001, p. 228)
  34. 34. Media MultiplexityAs relationships become closer, peopleuse a wider variety of media to stay intouch.(Haythornthwaite, 2002)

  45. 45. key elementsKey elements in a successful online community include (Morville &Rosenfeld, 2006):• Cultures and communities don’t just happen; they require careful nurturing. On the other hand, they wither if over-managed. (p. 460)• Someone has to play God, setting up the rules and infrastructure that create an environment that becomes self-sustaining, and where people join and participate. (p. 461)• Participation requires a balance of give (creating content) and take. (p. 462)• It’s not grandiose to claim that each successful online community has its own culture (p. 462)
