    • A community is commonly considereda social unit (a group of people) who have something in common, such as norms, values, or identity. Often - but not always - communities share a sense of place that is situated in a given geographical area (e.g. a country, village, town, or neighborhood). Durable relations that extend beyond immediate genealogical ties also define a sense of community. People tend to define those social ties as important to their identity, practice, and roles in social institutions like family, home, work, government, society, or humanity, at large. [1] Although communities are usually small relative to personal social ties (micro-level),"community" may also refer to large group affiliations (or macro-level), such as national communities, international communities, and virtual communities. The word "community" derives from the Old French comuneté, which comes from the Latin communitas "community", "public spirit" (from Latin communis, "shared in common"). [2]

      Human communities may share intent, belief, resources, preferences, needs, and risks in common, affecting the identity of the participants and their degree of cohesiveness.

    • QUOTE: For the past decade, Facebook has focused on connecting friends and families. …
      Facebook can help contribute to answering these five important questions:
      • How do we help people build supportive communities that strengthen traditional institutions in a world where membership in these institutions is declining?
      • How do we help people build a safe community that prevents harm, helps during crises and rebuilds afterwards in a world where anyone across the world can affect us?
      • How do we help people build an informed community that exposes us to new ideas and builds common understanding in a world where every person has a voice?
      • How do we help people build a civically-engaged community in a world where participation in voting sometimes includes less than half our population?
      • How do we help people build an inclusive community that reflects our collective values and common humanity from local to global levels, spanning cultures, nations and regions in a world with few examples of global communities?
