Forums are a great way to get information, support and advice from people who have been in your situation before. There is an online forum for just about anything you can think of, so it’s easy to find one that suits your needs. In this blog post we will discuss the different types of forums available!
There are many different types of forums available, depending on your specific needs. For example, you could find a Q&A site where people ask questions and other members answer them. You can also join groups to have support in person or through discussion boards online. Or you might want to try out a Discussion Board for more focused discussions about topics that interest you among your peers?
Q&A: This is an active forum where people ask questions and other members answer them. In order to post a question, you have to sign up for the website.
Support Groups: A group of peers can help provide support in person or through discussion boards online. The specific type will depend on what your needs are such as weight loss, parenting teens, etc.
Discussion Boards: Similar to a Q&A, but without the need for discussion. These forums typically focus on specific topics and people discuss them within their own group. This is great because you can learn about things that you may not know much about!
Both Q&A and Discussion: A little bit of both! This type of forum thread can be both an answer and discussion.
Open forum and moderated forum: An open forum means anyone with internet access can post content while moderators moderate posts on a moderator-moderated board. Moderators will approve all new posts before they go live so it’s typically less crowded than an unmoderated one.
