Blogs and forums are still a popular way to share information, and since their inception, they have evolved tremendously. It is estimated that in 2023, 550 million people will engage with forums worldwide.
Blogs are not necessarily one author anymore. They often involve many authors. Blogs are either a part of a website or a standalone area to share information. Blogs are not a two-way communication platform, but the information is rich and considered.
Forums also convey information but are like a message or bulletin board where people can start and join conversations. Like-minded people can use forums for problem-solving, engaging and collaborating with each other. Posts can be monitored and require approval before publishing. Reddit is an excellent example of a forum.
