[core tips] with the rise and growth of micro-blog and SNS, the once hot forum began to decline. Whether traditional forums have really started to decline, but we also see that some vertical communities (such as grass, pomegranate) not only do not show signs of decline, or continue to be supported by users. Where should the forum go,
with the rise and growth of micro-blog, SNS and social networks, the once unpopular forums are beginning to show signs of decline. CNNIC has just released the "thirtieth China Internet development report" data show that the current number of users of the BBS forum is about 156 million people, although compared to the previous two report, the number of users have to stop again, but for more than 10 years the BBS forum has been born, the gap with the new micro-blog and social networking sites are continue to expand.
