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.

How do I stay safe online?
