Gartner Glossary

Community

A constantly changing group of people collaborating and sharing their ideas over an electronic network (e.g., the Internet). Communities optimize their collective power by affiliation around a common interest, by the compression of the time between member interactions (i.e., communicating in real time), and by asynchronous “postings” that potentially reach more participants and permit more reflection time than real-time interactions.
