Depends on the subject of your context. There are different types of online communities:

Vertikale online Gemeinschaft des Handels und Gewerbes

Vertikale online Gemeinschaft fuer Technologie etc.

See for example the website:


... In addition to editorial content, visitors to the Web sites will find:

Technology Forums for discussions of topics of interest;
Searchable databases of published patent filings;
Searchable online directories of companies in various aspects of the field;
Information about organised study tours and group travel to conferences;
Information about customised research projects seeking partners;
Assistance in transactions for purchase of products/services;
Assistance translating correspondence, contracts, spec sheets, manuals, etc.;
Advertising, links, and much more.
"We want these Web sites to reflect the needs of their communities, so we're anxious for those in the field to advise us of the services we can offer to them," added Bernstein.
In the year 2000, expects to launch additional Web sites dedicated to other technologies, such as:

Advanced manufacturing techniques
Medical technology
Micromachining & MEMS
Advanced materials, etc.
Again, the theme of all the communities will be where foreign language sources dominate the flow of information in that science/technology, while at the same time there is a real need for the information by English-speaking professionals (and vice versa).

I hope this helps
