The word ‘forum’ was used in ancient Rome. In those days, it meant the central city square, where the population gathered to discuss important issues. Since then, little has changed: today, forums on the Internet gather people from all over the country to discuss certain topics and help in solving everyday life problems, for example, Instant Support from Panasonic. The essence remains the same, only the form has changed.
In more official language, a forum is an Internet platform for communication between users. Most often, such sites are united by one common narrowly focused topic: from beadwork to self-repairing a car. At the first stages of the development of the World Wide Web, they played an important role, since social networks had not yet been invented, and it was necessary to get valuable advice on important issues from somewhere.
Even today, forums are very popular among people, since they can be used to communicate on any, even the most frank, topics.
