Ellie, I came across the following book chapter some time ago, and it
has a nice table for classifying communities by primary technology on
pp. 22-23.

Preece, J. and Diane Maloney-Krichmar (2003) Online Communities. In J.
Jacko and A. Sears, A. (Eds.) Handbook of Human-Computer Interaction,
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates Inc. Publishers. Mahwah: NJ. 596-620.
 
Though, unfortunately I don't think the above work addresses community
decay or dissolution. 

Hope this helps in some way.  Good luck-

Paul

Subject: [Air-l] internet community breakups

I'm doing an independent study this semester on the breakup of Internet
communities, which I've called (for the project) Internet community
dissolution.  I've been able to find plenty of articles on Internet
communities and relationships, etc, but I haven't seen any on this
topic.

How is this topic generally phrased in the lit?  I came up with
absolutely
no results when I tried searching for it in various forms in my
library's
(pathetic) database.  Can anyone point me in the direction of where to
look
or specific articles on this?

Also, while I'm here, are there any articles out there that address the
definition and types of internet communities?  I could list them all out
from my personal experiences, but I'd like to have something published
to
back up what I say.

Thanks!
Ellie
