Online Forums Defined

Online forums are also called online discussion groups. Participants with common interests use online forums to exchange messages and ideas which can be either open or moderated by a user with extra privileges that acts as an editor of sorts. Online forums can be found for nearly any topic area. Often, more controversial topics get more attention and posts.

Example: Topix.com

Topix.com was originally started as a news aggregation service where users could comments on events typically happening in their communities. It created a community news editing platform and a forum system.
