Abstract or Description

With social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter continuing to grow in popularity, tools for online interaction have become increasingly individual-centric, heavily supporting one-to-one and one-to-many communications. The sites that attempt to support group conversation either end up losing the personal edge by providing a global space, or lose the potential of alternate perspectives by isolating themselves from the rest of the world. This project explores some opportunities provided by the idea of community networking. The designed and partially implemented system is made up of several group-oriented communication tools with twists that allow for collaborative conversation across the communities it hosts.
