What brought in our life the Internet - forums?
the Forum - mass meeting, congress (originally - the area in Ancient Rome where public life of the city concentrated). Such definition is given by Ojegov S. I. dictionary.
Presently definition remained, but expanded a little. Now as forums consider not only the summits “ Group of Eight “ or the international congresses of heads of states, but also various meetings - debate of the politician with people are in real life.
In the World Wide web forums got the definition - it is places where the people are flown down to state the point of view or just to talk, learn something new, to find the answer to the question.
Specifics of forums - to keep all information in itself that the visitor could read all history of development of the room. Rooms are called separate parts of a forum where this or that problem, or this or that event is discussed.
By means of forums people for the first time could argue openly on the Internet. Thanks to text messages each person can leave at a forum the message on the concerning question. Before emergence of blogs mass media furiously quoted forums of the leading websites, but now everything exchanged, blogs appeared at top the Internet - the Olympus.
Attendance of forums speaks about popularity of the websites and their development. At forums debate on the materials which came out on the website can be conducted or give all the best offers on its improvement. Forums serve dispute - platforms, especially if at a forum policy issues or economies are brought up.
The forum is, first of all, merging of a certain group of people on common interests. At thematic forums people could not only communicate, but also play various games. For example, “ Cities “ “ Surnames “ “ Synonyms “ “ Antonyms “. Forums brought the first games which had no graphics in the Internet, and existed only by means of use of letters.
Forums give the chance, without creating own website, to conduct a certain archive of materials on some problem. Very often at forums materials and the comments following to them as, for example, on the website Life where the system is most convenient for the visitor are placed.
Today everyone can create an own forum and by means of the panel of the administrator to make attractive design. After that it will be necessary to register the forum in search engines, and then to create couple of tens rooms in which “ will lodge “ inhabitants.
Forums can answer questions of visitors of the website. Let`s take, for example, the website about cars. If on the resource cars are on sale, then to them only the characteristic is given, and councils from owners, councils of masters, councils of sellers it is possible to find at a forum. Therefore forums became the first pass - encyclopedias rather reference books on a certain question.
Thanks to forums people do not need to hold houses huge reference books or piles of newspapers, it is enough to find the necessary thematic forum in the Internet and to look for the answer to the question interesting you. And if it is not, then to set it to the Internet. Not for nothing now on the website Mail. ru exists a heading Answers. mail. ru. On the same system also forums work. You write a question, and on the postal address to you letters come with answers.
As you can see, forums are already part of history of the Internet. Now the increasing popularity is gained by blogs therefore the majority of answers on the people interesting questions look for in them, but so far nobody cancelled forums, and on them everything also gathers and communicates the people.
