Not to be confused with
the current, trendy blog
. A forum is a space where like minded individuals can contribute
information of mutual benefit. A forum is a repository
of data which is meant
to inform and educate on a particular subject.
Forums generally are not conversational, rather, they are contributory.
An example of a forum is a Web site
where dental hygenists may contribute
information on technique, research, seminars and practicums, case studies, and all other manner of useful data.
