A Discussion Forum works as a central place for members of your online community or your customers to interact with each other, engage in discussions, share their experiences, discuss the information presented on your web site, and provide you with valuable feedback. Such communities offer a special bond for people with the same interests and views, and build a dedicated and long lasting following. Discussion forums have also been proven to be excellent tools for sales and customer support.
