Emotional interaction is the third necessity to form a perfect community. Sharing equipment, high fives, feelings and most importantly ideas lies at the basis of a healthy community. Within sharing ideas, whether it is person to person, or over the Internet, there becomes a snowball effect, where ideas come together to create a product greater than the sum of its parts. Sharing ideas also helps the spread movement in thought, which relates to our next idea. Community awareness is also necessary to create a good community. This means people invested in the community have to be aware of trends and updates, as well as the historical context of the community.
People also have to be aware of the environment in which their community exists. This environment can be either geographical or virtual. Both play an important part in bringing the community together. Lastly, there is activism. If a member of a community does not act upon his beliefs, he will feel useless. Participation and change help keep communities alive. Especially helping make improvements and have a say in the community makes the person believe that they have the power to influence the community in a positive manner.
