Definition of virtual community in English:
A community of people sharing common interests, ideas, and feelings over the Internet.
- Typically, these relationships form in virtual communities of common interests, experiences, and fates.
- At the same time, the Internet also provides a sense of virtual community for people with common interests - who might well be groups of customers who may in fact have a sense of community with other customers of similar products.
- Archived records of Internet virtual communities are being analysed for a variety of research interests.
