The Story of The Well, One of the First Online Communities
The Well is an online community founded in 1985. It was one of the first online communities and is amazingly still thriving today. While still growing, the community has some members that have been participating for over 20 years. The discussions on The Well range from "the political to very personal."
Needless to say, the members of The Well are passionate about the community and rely on the discussion, connections, and content. Until recently, the online community was owned by the large online news site, Salon.com.
Earlier this month, members of The Well demonstrated how much their online community means to them.
