Social Networks

  1. Bound together by pre-established interpersonal connections

  2. Each connection has his or her own social network

  3. Characterized by a spider web-like "network" structure

Online Communities

  1. Bound together by a common interest or topic

  2. ANY person can be a part of ANY community

  3. Characterized by a more complex overlapping and "nested" structure.
