Getting the best from Online Forums

Online ForumsForums were the original “social networks” on the web. Prior to their invention we had “bulletin boards” of course and before them a part of the Internet called “newsnet” where people could ask questions, post information and get advice or support. Nowadays it might seem that Facebook or Twitter has superceded this kind of community. But you’d be wrong. Research shows that 28% of people are actively engaged in using online forums – and, importantly, they tend to have high levels of confidence in the material on these forums.
