A properly organized group can function to bring advantages to its members by providing structure, effective information flow, and chain of command to the communication process. This is important because most groups form to ultimately reach a shared goal. The quality and efficiency of communication between group members is important because it can make or break the ability of the group to be productive in achieving the goal. Normally after deciding the goal of the group the creator(s) then proactively decide what positions are needed within the group and choose the people accordingly to fill the specific roles. The desired structure of the group will depend on the purpose the group is forming and what goal they are attempting to achieve: leisure, work, necessity, or duty. The structure of the group will therefore also affect the communication process and ultimately result in the ability to achieve its goal. To me the most important result of organized group communication is this: when one sends a message the receiver has the authority, ability, and motivation to act on it. It is important to keep in mind that most groups are created to complete a task.
Networks are also a beneficial communication tool. If used properly your network can help you link with individuals through other people in your network. Often these individuals are not direct connections and we would not otherwise be able to connect directly with desired contact without the help of our network. A network branches out through the members to help the networker reach key people in a vast variety of people in positions around the globe. That said I think that a network would be the perfect way to find the ideal individuals to create an organized group.
I am interested in learning and hearing about the ideas you have about both of the above topics. I would like to network with those who share similar thoughts, and eventually I would like to work with others who share similar interests to form a small organized group on the internet.
