I like forums as I can't really express much when talking so I check in like twice a week.

I have mixed feelings about SM and forums and find they are very destructive to my creative side yet I also need them. And, since I became a writer I have no choice but to join to spread the word. I have found that writing groups on FB are much more involved while on Twitter it seems to be all about how many followers you have. Very little engagement and then there's the date-seeking aspect that really surprised me on Twitter.
But I have met some extraordinary people.

Forums were much more active before FB came along. Years ago on Delphi forums there was a forum devoted to writers and they would interview authors, share their stories, etc. And that was even when you had to download your comments and couldn't read them on line. I post on FB but I can never find anything that I might want to revisit after a day or two.

I spend some time a day on forums, mostly for networking, but for leisure as well. Though it appears that forums have got less popular these days and everyone is shifting to social media instead.

I think people on forums put more thought into what they share and they develop closer bonds. I get little out of Twitter and Facebook is there but .
