Forums
Everything I thought about
forums being “old school” was

Right

Wrong
...and this is what I know
Forums
also known as message
boards
are one of the reasons
why the Internet is so large.
They act as centralized
locations for topical
discussion
Forums are just like
neighborhoods

..and in fact they were the earliest forms of
“communities” before G+ and Facebook
You can find forums
dedicated to anything
paintballing
Fashion
Pets
History
For any topic you
can think of...
you can find a
forum...
where people are
talking and
sharing
The very first software dedicated to
forum protocol was WIT, which was
developed by the W3 Consortium in
1994.
A forum can contain a
number of sub-forums each
of which may have several
topics
Within a forum's topic, each new
discussion started is called a thread
~Not the thread you sew with~
People talk and share about many things on forums
kind of like a blog
...in a way
Some

People say

are

Old-School..hmm

forums
Some people say that forums are
stagnant
I Say...
Forums are still extremely popular!
Did you know

who
launched TinyURL

Unicyclist Community
#Justsaying
Just like any social network
Forums have Etiquette
Once you have registered to a
forum,take the time to look around
and see what is being offered ( not
all forums are created equally).
Create your profile ( make it a
good one) and add a good image
of yourself.
Most Forums allow forum signatures..
"a little advertisement you write about
your business that is automatically
attached to every forum post you
make."
Online forums are made of
people..seriously! Make sure
you are connecting to build a
relationship!
Remember the golden rule “Treat others as you want
to be treated”? Many people forget that rule and tend
to say things that maybe should never have been said
and act in ways shows lack of composure. Think
before you speak and consider this, if you were trying
to build credibility.. then it can be gone in an instant
with that kind of behavior.
Don’t forget that the reason you
joined a forum was to contribute!
Become a person of value and ask
questions, offer your opinion and
reply to questions that are asked. The
reality is that the more involved you
become, the more known you
become.
