Default Are Internet forums dead?

Came across a debatable piece. Explains why lot of niche internet forums like Traderji, IT etc. are seeing less user participation and low quality posts. The ancient relic of the internet is losing relevance due to multitude of factors ranging from bad UI design to lack of identity. Added with the competition from open knowledge platforms like quora.

Now internet=socialmedia.
Many people using internet today, especially mobiles, use only social media apps. They hardly know about internet websites.

Even seeing decline in activity in websites like Quora, Reddit and others. Even the apps from these services not helping much.

Instant gratification and mobility factors are mostly responsible.

So one way for such forums to survive is if they can link to social media directly So that a post here gets automatically posted to FB-Twitter (Like ET comments section).

Social media groups work differently from web based forums. The social media groups work more like how email lists worked in past. Both can coexist and both have different uses.

Forums are still quite popular. Look at the likes of team-bhp.com and futures.io which are still popular and which have an increasing user base.

A big reason for forum usage to go down is that a lot of people from the newer generation dont venture beyond facebook and whatsapp groups for interacting with people who share their hobby.

Teacher kinda posters reward is wider audience & lots of wah-wah In this social media beats forums hands down Keeping in touch with fiends & relatives bonus. So you gotta give them best of both - Being part of a proffesional circle as well as wider audience.

Team-Bhp has a decade old design, but is highly popular. So the content matters a lot for any forum to survive. IMO

Trading itself is a difficult career, people blow a/c in few days, so maybe thats why trading related forums have little participation.
