The core of facilitation is to serve the group and assist it in reaching its goals or purpose. The distance to the hard cold ground varies with the community or group goals. The purpose is often driven by the site owners goals. For groups with their own goals who choose to interact online the facilitator may be the convenor, team leader, outside facilitator, instructor/teacher, or simply an interested member. Their purpose is focused on the groups needs and goals.
