I’m disappointed in Digital Point

    I remember when digital point was full of webmasters posting everywhere. I just joined because I’m getting back into the webmasters realm.

    Does anyone here remember when digital point was overwhelming with webmasters? What happened?

    black hat world.

    To answer the OP, forums in general are dying. It's just the way it is these days.

    I guess more people are using Facebook and other social platforms.

    I have a feeling that's going to change a bit. With Facebook compromising everyone's personal info, I think people are going to start looking back at what being safe is! Outside of a few scammers that the web world has built things to guard against, social forums and websites are still the best IMO! It just takes a few things like the Facebook scandal for them to realize it!

    Yes Facebook was data harvesting on a whole nother level! People will still go there because they have a history there.

    It will be interesting to see what happens in this regard. Perhaps being able to participate in "social" groups anonymously will make a comeback.

    Facebook seems to have sucked the life out of forums which is a shame. I'd rather have privacy of forums.

    I think forums will bounce back in time. There's a lot of mistrust with fb, and the next generation of webmasters and bloggers won't even use it.

    I doubt that.
    There are a lot of websites which are more search engine friendly in terms of getting answers for a webmaster. For example, Stack Overflow. Forums will die eventually.

    I wonder why Slack wont take off, I've tried to get people into joining a cpl of those and they love the platform but since their cpl thousand social network isn't instantly in the same spot, it fails.

    Forums are, and most likely will remain, a solid and reliable source of information and social connection since they have been used for so long and tend to have a publicly accountable information relay.

    I prefer forums over social media sites, good luck finding the answer to a question on Facebook.
