Summary Information technology (IT), especially as it merges with mobile telephony and the next generation of wireless applications, is often credited with continued development of virtual communities. Like a well house, IT is bringing people together on a global scale, as well as at a community level. New virtual
communities are utilizing email, digital short message service (SMS) and many web-based software applications for fulfilling human needs for socialization and work. This article discusses how virtual communities facilitated by IT have developed and can provide an infrastructure with both opportunities and drawbacks in relation to connection, collaboration, and communication during the growth of knowledge globalization.
