    Currently, we witness the growth of ICT-mediated solutions for chronic diseases management, especially to assist and support patients in lifestyle changes in order to improve their health condition. Being physically active is one the recommended lifestyle changes for patients with chronic diseases. The challenge within those ICT-mediated solutions for physical activity support is to allow patients to manage themselves their physical activity level (PAL) and provide them with the needed social support. One of those solutions available is the use of Virtual Community (VC).
