What does virtual interactive community mean?
Weegy: A virtual community is a social network of individuals who interact through specific media, potentially crossing geographical and political boundaries in order to pursue mutual interests or goals. [ One of the most pervasive types of virtual community include social networking services, which consist of various online communities. The term virtual community is attributed to the book of the same title by Howard Rheingold, published in 1993. The book, which could be considered a social enquiry, putting the research in the social sciences, discussed his adventures on The WELL and onward into a range of computer-mediated communication and social groups, broadening it to information science. The technologies included Usenet, MUDs (Multi-User Dungeon) and their derivatives MUSHes and MOOs, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), chat rooms and electronic mailing lists; the World Wide Web as we know it today was not yet used by many people. Rheingold pointed out the potential benefits for personal psychological well-being, as well as for society at large, of belonging to such a group. These virtual communities all encourage interaction, sometimes focusing around a particular interest, or sometimes just to communicate. Some virtual communities do both. They allow users to interact over a shared passion, whether it be through message boards, chat rooms, social networking sites, or virtual worlds. ] (More)

does social media make people more self-centered?
Weegy: It probably does, as most commercials have the same message: you deserve this, you must buy this and this because everyone has them - even if you don't need them. (More)

Do social media make people more self-centered? Does it encourage more conflict between people? Why or why not?
Weegy: Yes, I think it makes people more self-centered. It's very much focused on saying what they want to say, talking about themselves, and usually over-sharing personal information. [ I also think it makes more conflicts because it's easy for someone to sit behind a computer screen and start a fight, even if they wouldn't dare say those things face to face. ] (More)
