This article aims to verify how the personal network in online space generated by individu-als belonging to social groups and virtual communities, represents a contribution and a support for the relational life in the real social space. We carried out an exploratory study where, through the analysis of a case, the basis for understanding the phenomenon of the Social Streets were acquired: our hypothesis could be tested on a larger number of cases by future researches. Some members of a Facebook group of a Social Street were involved through online questionnaires. We found that the individuals’ online community life can be significant-ly linked to the group’s offline life in the shared urban social space of the street, shaping our example as a hybrid community and a concrete case of augmented reality.
