***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** Dear Socnetters, I'm actually working on the emergence of virtual communities and I would like to know if you make or not a difference between a virtual community and a social network. Can anyone suggest references that directly bear on this question ?
