I think Social media networking is going to burst in about five years after everyone gets tired of all the FP farmtown requests and such, twitter mayalways be here as the news media is flocking to them.

the problem with any board is the subject matter it covers.

Anime and Gaming have to fight for members these days.

automotive not so much

tech forums are always going to be huge no matter what.

if you want a forum site to survive and you can stand the "noise" then go and use FB connect and other mods/hacks to link to twitter and myspace.

Well we will have to see.... just out of interest is there a group where when you want to release a new forum and everybody jumps in just to make it look active. ok this might be dumb idea but has anybody done this before.??? because once again , and i am sure it has been the same problem that everybody faces this problem is that to get new people in they want to see if there is any action there. Might be hard to tear some folks away from( face reading... sorry Book) lol.

I cant believe this is a real question...

Forums hold a different purpose than most social networking sites...

forums are actually social networking sites themselves...

Let's face it, YES is killing the concept, not just Twitter, but WP, FB, (soon Wave) and few others, you can count for millions their users, you can see them visiting more than once a day their sites, teenagers have the tools and the know-how to get fun there, for those that deny it, they act like my father who is still stuck on audio tapes (lol)
There is no serious stats on vB owners? they can ban you they can warn you (or bully you) but you never see numbers on how many licenses have been sold? how many of then are for Game forums (my guess 40%+) how many are dedicated to medicine, education, government, etc...

Of course you can go to MySpace and ask if the site is slowly dying, (after millions of dollars generated) they would blatantly deny it! but stats says the contrary, so by not having stats on vB they are not aware of... nobody will accept their knowledge or what they do it's almost useless trash ... the truth will set you free!

p.s. I love WP, you can't beat that!
WORDPRESS Foundation
The point of the foundation is to ensure free access, in perpetuity, to the software projects we support. People and businesses may come and go, so it is important to ensure that the source code for these projects will survive beyond the current contributor base, that we may create a stable platform for web publishing for generations to come. As part of this mission, the Foundation will be responsible for protecting the WordPress, WordCamp, and related trademarks. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the WordPress Foundation will also pursue a charter to educate the public about WordPress and related open source software.

Well what has happen is that the general public wants as little information as possible and the rest of the time there having little short conversations on each others face book walls so that satisfies most people needs they don't need more. And easily swallows up small business but technically wise on a subject in a certain area the script can still do well.

But i tell you i have been trying hard to get people to join in on community for a certain type of gaming and i decided to revamp and start a new concept. Man with all the hours i am telling you it is a real challenge lol. But it's a hobby.

What about Twitter's REALTIME activity? even a shoutbox diminish post activity in a forum...

p.s. it reminds me of an old Boxer, with old newspapers hanging in his garage

I think FB and Twitter should be leveraged and incorporated into vBulletin as much as possible, they are the kings of social networking and the internet seems to be moving that way. My take is it's best to get on the bandwagon rather than getting left in its tracks.

well i decided to go under ground for my city , I have an idea maybe we should start a new underground community's network for all around the world. and each vb theme has to be for a city not for a hole country or state then in our font page we have a link o each others sites and we take turns having privet meetings on different sits, then we can triad ideas on marketing then we can we can trade content for our sites, and discus how we are going to take over the world hahahahhah . then we become 1 in under ground news,..... i am feeling bad .
I was looking at another social network script , i was getting a bit frustrated with vb. But then i was thinking , if purchased this then i am just going to try to compete with face book. because lets face it everybody is going to be on it . but if you create a buzz for your own city yes underground and there would be topics that you would not fine in a liberal newspaper or community then you are creating a huge niche and a popular one. You have a topics about tatoos ,FTa (free to air),so much more Hack's, how to pimp your ride and if you keep it to a boarder point where it is still in good taste not pornography , well there will be ads for adult entertainment.
well there is an idea.

True, on my site allow for facebook comments all over the place, threads, profiles, articles, etc. people can post directly into a FB comments box, no FB connect necessary.
