Online Forums

Online forums are a great place to have a chat, make friends and share your experiences and opinions.

How do I join?

Beforehand, it’s smart to scan the web site and browse the forums, comments, and message boards. Just like when you walk in the door of a social event, you want to get a feel for the place and how the people are interacting.

You can tell from the comments and conversations if you will relate to the people involved or not.

Some communities ask you to sign up before you can read the boards or comments. Do a little research by reading reviews or reading the website itself to see if you think it would be a good match for your personality.

Once you’ve signed up on a website, you can find people you think might make good friends. The easiest place to start is identifying others who share your interests.

Where can I join?

How do I stay safe online?

Most users are genuine, but because it is so easy to hide your real identity, it is possible to come into contact with people you would normally avoid.
