COSTA, Rogério da. On a new concept of community: social networks, personal communities and collective intelligence. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2006, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1414-3283.

This text essentially deals with the transmutation of the concept of "community" into "social networks". This change is due largely to the boom of virtual communities in cyberspace, a fact that has generated a number of studies not only on this new way of weaving a society, but also on the dynamic structure of communication networks. At the core of this transformation, concepts such as social capital, trust and partial sympathy are called upon, to enable us to think about the new forms of association that regulate human activity in our time.

Keywords : computer communication networks; community networks; collective intelligence.
