I’m used to forums and the structure of forums. I like the idea of a social networking site, but is there no way to have it organized, at least at the end-user’s (that is, the visitor’s) request, as a traditional forum, in traditional forum hierarchy?
Seems that, judging by what I can see here, BuddyPress is organized into groups, each of which maintains its own forums…is that right?
BTW, I’m a hold-out from the period between 1995-2005, roughly, so I don’t really get Facebook, Myspace, Redbook, Friendster, Twitter, whoever! Thus, my questions reflect my general ignorance with social networks and why they’re set up the way they are. I mean, I understand giving everyone their own page, blogs, “groups,” and whatnot…I don’t understand why all that can’t be organized into a traditional electronic bulletin board structure, which seems more understandable to me.
I mean, I ain’t even sure I’ll be able to find any replies, should any be posted! Took me a few minutes of navigating to find somewhere to post this post, unlike in a traditional forum where I’d just look for the “Introduce Yourself” sub-forum….
Yes, I know my questions probably make no sense! So thanks for listening….
