FOC08 (1): Del grupo a la comunidad, principios básicos. | El caparazón - 0 views

    Os dejo hoy un resumen de la Primera Unidad del Curso de Facilitación de Comunidades Online en el que participo, considerando que puede ser de utilidad a diversas disciplinas, desde la educación al márketing social. El curso se desarrolla en inglés (paso a traducir este mismo artículo) pero he creído que a algunos lectores podrían seros de interés algunas de sus conclusiones. Lo iré haciendo al finalizar cada unidad. Se trata de un ejercicio de síntesis y aportación personal. Podéis ver las fuentes teóricas de las que parto, las que matizo según mi experiencia, al final del artículo

  • One behaviour in online groups that has been extensively studied is that of the non-participating members, termed the ‘lurkers’ - Etienne Wenger[2] calls them Legitimate Peripheral Participants. Lurkers are widely known to be among the majority of defined members and they have been found to make up over 90% of most online groups. They are perhaps the most important members in view of their potential to contribute to online groups.

      Are lurkers also part of the community or are they standers-by? IF they become part of the ocmmunity only after participating, after what amount of activity would they then be considered part of the community? If they ARE part of the community, what distinguishes them from mere interested on-lookers?
