Are message boards in decline? There was a thread made some time ago that asked posters why they don't post anymore. I see how this forum, CBR, is lower in activity than it has before. But it isn't just with CBR. I see this with many other forums I go to as well.
I agree with the article that stuff like Facebook, Twitter, and other stuff like that aren't what is influencing the decline of forums. I think something else is at work coupled with what goes on in the forums. I don't know if anyone will agree with an assertion I have.
