I as a customer wouldn't use these. On top: BBSes (like phpBB) can be used without registration (if allowed).
There is always a need for a forum, I thought my one was dead, but as long as you post announcements & have people set up their notifications, there will always be a need for one, apart from anything else questions asked on FB ect... can get bumped down easily & people end up getting ignored, this is less likely with a forum however...hypersaw wrote: ↑Sun May 14, 2017 8:14 pmI recently started a business. Have a main website with e-shop (on prestashop). Have a blog (on wordpress) and now considering to launch a forum with phpbb.
Sometimes I feel that the forum era has gone for good. Nova days there are new age sh?t like facebook groups, G+ and so on...
In my niche there are some big forums from 2009 with thousands of members. Some of these forums are death (because last posts where on 2013) some of these are still active. I definitely like to have my own forum because forum users are potential buyers.
So, my question: do I need a new forum or forget it and use fb or/and G+?
