Fan Sites: The Best and Worst Of Online Communities

The fan site is one of the best examples of an online community and they are springing up all over the Web for the celebrity of the moment. These sites bring together a diverse group of people from all walks of life with a common interest in a particular celebrity, film, or television program.

Fan sites exemplify both the best and the worst of online community. With ready access to pictures of the object of the site's affection, these sites are often chock full of images. Links to news articles complement the usual biography, list of credits, story lines, and commentary that comprise the content of the site.
