What Makes Online Communities in Rare Diseases Special?

What are the dynamics of online rare disease communities that make them different from their non-rare disease counterparts? Is it the variation in size? Does it depend on the condition? Or is the makeup of the respective communities intrinsically different?

In general, any online community is driven by a shared interest in a specific topic. Thriving communities can be found for all sorts of interests, whether it’s people who are passionate about orchids, or people who retain a fascination for a particular model of car.

Communities remain active because individuals value the benefits they offer: shared information, an opportunity to fit in, and a sense of empowerment in common pursuits. Smaller communities tend to be more active than larger communities; it’s easier to make personal connections with other members.
