Community Community!

Filed under: Uncategorized — jgualotuna @ 7:59 pm

As I sit here and ponder about what is a community? Many thoughts come racing to mind. What exactly does it take to get a community started? Is it just a group of people who share a common interest or a group of people who just want to join a group or clique to be accepted?

A  community is defined as a social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage.

When thinking about a community the first issue that pops to mind is all the people living with in the city I reside in. We all have to share the streets, markets, parks , and etc. This is such a large community to meet the needs of each individual.

There are communities with in larger communities due to the fact that people all have different interests. It is easier to focus on a smaller group then it is a larger community. You can discuss issues more in depth with a smaller group. It is harder to voice everyone’s opinion in such a large community.

Communities currently are using technology to expand and reach out to individual people who share their communities common interests. For example their are discussion topics and chat groups that you can enter and discuss whats on your mind to an entire online community. Your opinion is being posted on the internet or just read by an individual whom you decide to chat with.
