This word is often used metaphorically, as an honorific second-person pronoun. In this usage, its literal translation is "you". For example, early in the anime Macrossfirst aired inthe characters Hikaru Ichijyo and Lynn Minmay use the term this way to address one another, until they get to know each other better.
Gemeinschaft usually translated as "community" and Gesellschaft "society" or "association". No group is exclusively one or the other. Gemeinschaft stress personal social interactionsand the roles, values, and beliefs based on such interactions.
Gesellschaft stress indirect interactions, impersonal roles, formal values, and beliefs based on such interactions.
New social tools relieve some of those burdens, allowing for new kinds of group-forming, like using simple sharing to anchor the creation of new groups. One simple form of cooperation, almost universal with social tools, is conversation; when people are in one another's company, even virtually, they like to talk.
Conversation creates more of a sense of community than sharing does. Collaborative production is a more involved form of cooperation, as it increases the tension between individual and group goals. The litmus test for collaborative production is simple: An online community builds weaker bonds if allows users to be anonymous.
Organizational communication Effective communication practices in group and organizational settings are very important to the formation and maintenance of communities. The ways that ideas and values are communicated within communities are important to the induction of new members, the formulation of agendas, the selection of leaders and many other aspects.
Organizational communication is the study of how people communicate within an organizational context and the influences and interactions within organizational structures. Group members depend on the flow of communication to establish their own identity within these structures and learn to function in the group setting.
Although organizational communication, as a field of study, is usually geared toward companies and business groups, these may also be seen as communities. The principles of organizational communication can also be applied to other types of communities.
Public administration[ edit ] Public administration is the province of local, state and federal governments, with local governments responsible for units in towns, cities, villages, and counties, among others. The most well known "community department" is housing and community development which has responsibility for both economic development initiatives, and as public housing and community infrastructure e.
Sense of community[ edit ] In a seminal study, McMillan and Chavis  identify four elements of "sense of community": To what extent do participants in joint activities experience a sense of community?
A "sense of community index SCI was developed by Chavis and colleagues, and revised and adapted by others. Although originally designed to assess sense of community in neighborhoods, the index has been adapted for use in schools, the workplace, and a variety of types of communities.
Socialization Lewes Bonfire Night procession commemorating 17 Protestant martyrs burnt at the stake from to The process of learning to adopt the behavior patterns of the community is called socialization. The most fertile time of socialization is usually the early stages of life, during which individuals develop the skills and knowledge and learn the roles necessary to function within their culture and social environment.
But socialization also includes adults moving into a significantly different environment, where they must learn a new set of behaviors. Other important influences include schools, peer groups, people, mass media, the workplace, and government.
The degree to which the norms of a particular society or community are adopted determines one's willingness to engage with others.
The norms of tolerancereciprocityand trust are important "habits of the heart," as de Tocqueville put it, in an individual's involvement in community.
Community development Community development is often linked with community work or community planning, and may involve stakeholders, foundations, governments, or contracted entities including non-government organisations NGOsuniversities or government agencies to progress the social well-being of local, regional and, sometimes, national communities.
More grassroots efforts, called community building or community organizingseek to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the skills they need to effect change in their own communities. Community development practitioners must understand both how to work with individuals and how to affect communities' positions within the context of larger social institutions.
Public administrators, in contrast, need to understand community development in the context of rural and urban development, housing and economic development, and community, organizational and business development.
Formal accredited programs conducted by universities, as part of degree granting institutions, are often used to build a knowledge base to drive curricula in public administrationsociology and community studies.Welcome to Priory Lane Community School.
