Why Forums Are A Good Decision

What is a forum? That seems like a question nobody really asks, and nobody really knows the answer to. Seems like something that's just there when you type in a Google search. But there's actually a lot more to it. It's in fact, not a place for just internet nerds. I'm a very avid user of forums and my friends just shrug their shoulders when I try and talk to them about it. In all reality, if I had to choose between facebook and forums I would without a doubt choose forums.

Forums are in fact, a social networking site in themselves. With thousand upon thousand of forums for any topic you an think of, they can become a good place to meet and socialize with like minded people just like you. It seems the world is so huge and there's so many people out there, that finding people just like you can be a daunting task. Not anymore. It's easy.

Ever since joining a forum, my life has increased dramatically. I have gotten the best advice possible and help and support from some of the most interesting, unique, and friendly people out there. These people really know what their talking about and you can tell just by clicking on their profile, and looking at the posts that they've been posting. It'd be different if everyone was anonymous and you only got advice from spammers. But no, these are real people, with real experience giving real advice.

Another thing I like about forums, is that most of them have a ranking system. You post x amount of posts and you and you actually get to level up! Just like an rpg game, for all of you gamers out there. Knowing that someone has posted 1000 posts and have earned their rank, makes me confident that they know what they're talking about, over some random local person you know that only gets their information from watching cable. Cable's cool, but it's too mainstream for me, and you only get bits and pieces of information.

So there you, my goal is to help people understand what a forum is, so they can actually participate and get quality information, based on personal experience, rather than searching google. Google has a lot of good information too, but the search results only show you content that has a lot of links linked to it, not anything based on your personal experience. So next time you have a question, at least you don't have to rely on the not so consistent Google, and expand your social horizons at the same time! Good luck.
