With computer-mediated communication (CMC) media such as the Internet, the barriers of time and geographical boundaries to communication are easily overcome. Thus, the idea of electronic tribe (i.e., e-tribe) is able to take shape where individuals are able to communicate with like-minded people, with the aid of electronic communication media, as if they are within the same geographical area. The flexibility and speed offered by electronic media provide easy access for communicating globally.
