An Online Community is a virtual community that exists online and generally offers members a variety of systems/ software to communicate and share information within a social or professional group. This might include weblogs, bulletin boards, chat rooms and forums. This category is NOT for writing platforms, sites which encourage submissions from writers (for critique/ etc.) but do not pay writers. Anything which does not offer a resource for writers to exchange information, ideas, tips, rants should be listed in Online Writing.
