What is a virtual group?

A virtual group in an online community that operates and collaborates remotely. These groups still have the same like-minded or skilled people, they just don’t get together in a physical venue i.e. community centre or café. It’s the new way of getting together!

Why join a virtual group?

  • There are lots of reasons to join a virtual group such as:
  • Provides a platform to bring people together, that may otherwise not be possible
  • You can participate from the comfort of your own home
  • Enable a better work/life balance
  • Saves money – no travel, venue, equipment, utility, and refreshment costs
  • A safe environment to get to know people who share similar interests
  • You can reach out to a wider audience
  • Good for your mental health and well-being
