A community is a social unit of any size that shares common values, or that is situated in a given geographical area (e.g. a neighbouhood, a village, a small town, or a city). It is a group of people who are connected by durable relations that extend beyond immediate genealogical ties and who mutually define that relationship as important to their social identity and practice. Although communities are usually small, community may also refer to large groups, such as national communities, international communities and virtual communities.
