Abstract
For the past years, there have been a growing number of online communities and
more and more people are getting involved in one or more online communities. Among
many research and studies on online community, however, there is few examining
online community with theoretical frameworks and many are descriptive. As online
community is ubiquitous and becoming reality rather than remaining as hype, new
concepts and understanding of this new social formation is imperative. The purpose of
this paper is to provide such concepts and understanding by exploring central concepts
of community and social aspects of CMC. Fundamental elements of online community
are assessed to see whether it contains the elements of community and how CMC affect
those elements.
