An online forum is a website where users may talk about anything. It differs from a chat room in that it enables for extended conversations instead of just text exchanges. An online discussion forum, unlike social media platforms, is usually dedicated to a certain topic, brand, or audience.
Members can ask each other questions or initiate debates in online forums, which are usually divided into several areas. Many forums allow members to post both text and video content, and forum posts tend to be longer than those seen on social media or in chat rooms.
