What is a Virtual Community?

A virtual community consists of a social network of people who utilise the digital network to meet online in order to pursue shared interests or goals.

Types of Virtual Communities

  • An online chat room is a virtual location where online users can undertake real-time communication with others through text, speech and/or video. Popular programs with these functions include Discord and Zoom.

  • A virtual world is a digitally simulated world within which users can interact with each other and their environment. For example, Minecraft, Roblox, and The Sims.
