for building the world’s largest social networking platform, creating e-communities, and being one of the individuals that is credited with helping elect Obama, because of his ability to rally individuals across the nation and connect them into a virtual Obama Nation, not know what community is?

I think a community is a group of people that are linked by location, or common perspectives or joint action or combinations of these three.  If this is true, how many communities are you actively a part of? And, how about you, what are your your descriptors of community?
