Definition of
Forum

A forum is a community where people can engage in conversations and exchange ideas, opinions, and suggestions. Forums may contain specific topics of interest or random topics in general, with each topic usually assigned to its own thread to make it easier for users to look for and engage in content that interests them. Forum websites rose to popularity during the late 90s but slightly declined during the 2000s due to the boom of social media.
