Except for some saintly altruists, the world revolves around ‘Me’. We keep a mental network map showing who are our friends and our enemies. Who are the people I will see today or contact by the internet or mobile phone? Who can I count on for different kinds of help? Which of my friends and relatives know each other, and which get along with each other? So networks built around ‘Me’ – personal communities – have always been with us. But, nowadays, with Facebook and its ilk, people are becoming very aware that communities can consist of a person’s network of relationships, wherever they are located.
