  What does Community mean?
What does building online community really mean?

That is a good question and one that is asked quite often. In order to explain community it is sometimes easier to liken it to the backyard fence where neighbors congregate. Building an online community is providing that backyard fence where members can meet, share their thoughts, concerns, render and receive support and just have a good time together in a safe and comfortable environment. This can be achieved with a message board and/or chat room or a mailing list on the site. It is important to remember that, like with real communities, there must be a set of guidelines that are consistently upheld in order to ensure quality participation.
