Many-to-many communication occurs when information is shared between groups.[1] Members of a group receive information from multiple senders.[2]

Wikis are a type of many-to-many communication, where multiple editors collaborate to create content that is disseminated among a wide audience.[3] Video conferencing, online gaming, chat rooms, and internet forums are also types of many-to-many communication.[4][5]
