|The forum world has no doubt suffered from soical member like facebook, however are forums now dead or dying out totaly?
To me I believe that to have a good discussion a forum is always better than say a facebook page or group.
Reasons are simple..... threads categories etc are easily visible and you know where to post to get the maximum response.
On a facebook page it is just one scrolling news feed, so if you join a facebook page then you have have to hunt for a long time to say add your comment and views.
Also forums have better management, you can have private ares, close a topic make it a sticky etc, forums run for mainly the niche market now days and are no where near dead as of yet.
Social member attracts more trolls and more trouble, a well run forum deals with them a lot quicker, as a facebook page may attract far more guests etc that can come at a costly price.
These are my views ,,,
Over to you guys and girls.
