Talking about that, social media is more like some kind of "eternal" right now, without much past and future. With forums, there's all three: right now, past and future.

Keep your users engaged. Use newsletters, and focus on great content. The days of simply having a chatroom are gone - and users crazy more than that.

Forums are one of the oldest and traditionally most reliable forms of communication on the internet. It's our job to ensure they continue - so engage your users often, and frequently as you can.

I didn't post on social media recent months, especially Facebook but no problem, the forum is still good and visitors and new members still come from search engines. I think we should focus on this source than spend too much time on social media.

It amazes me how forums have died in the past 5 years due to social media (which I despise), I still run two vB forums, but they're nothing like they used to be.

People seem to be blinded by social media. I get bored hearing people say they don't need a website because of it but the same applies as has been discussed in this thread. SM is too instantaneous and gone.

We need to bring them back. A great way to do that is to allows users to log in from Facebook and Twitter with ease. Then you need to just keep them coming back. That’s the hardest part.

Not only login from Facebook and Twitter but also embed Facekook and Twitter inside the templates.

Many people prefer the anonymity of a message board.

Well, the link in your signature is to a forum with NSFW content, and it's pretty easy to find adult content on the internet, if not from ads that are personalized to us tracking.

You have to offer your users something they can only find on your site.

I agree with this but it can be hard to do in saturated niches.

This is probably the most important question in reference to forums (or even web sites). It´s really difficult for us who been dealing with web pages since 2003 or so to migrate not only contents but the whole conception. If you think about it there´s a high chance that even social media will lose popularity very soon.
Forums used to be a home for everything, now it has came down to problems fixing. The social part of it has moved to other platforms.

I would love to know where the trend is going, damn! wouldn´t that be nice?
