A community is defined as a group of people with a common lifestyle, attitude, belief and need. A global community, on the other hand, is all about different communities coming together to share their views and perceptions of the various aspects of life by means of healthy and unbiased interactions. This is something that the blogging world has managed to achieve thus far.
We have seen bloggers from all over the world hopping over to blogs, sending comments and interacting with one another without taking their cultural and racial differences seriously. All they set their minds to do is to make friends and learn from each other. No discriminations involved!
You can also read this article posted by our dear friend, Rolando, which touched on the fact that blogs do not discriminate, and that blogs are designed for everyone from all walks of life to speak their minds.This is a perfect picture of a global community, which can even be seen in this blogging world.
This is likewise in YouTube, a video broadcasting website that displays all kinds of videos, of which some are related to affairs that have apparently brought the global community closer together.
YouTube actually works just like other interactive websites. It is not only about watching videos passively. Viewers of the videos are allowed to express their opinions and send in their valuable comments about the videos. If you were to read the comments that come in, you will find that there are interactions involved between people from totally different backgrounds. These people may not have talked or met up with one another before, but once they start cracking conversations on the videos, they simply cannot stop.
This is how great the impact YouTube can bring about to the global community. Camaraderie is being fostered among people through these virtual conversations and people can find a sense of satisfaction in them that they are a part of the YouTube family, whether as the ones uploading the videos or the ones commenting on them.

Kudos to YouTube for bringing the community together as one, and also to the blogging world that has brought our team closer to all the bloggers out there. With the existence of YouTube and many of such networking websites, bringing the community together is indeed the crowning glory of technology.
