Newsflash: Half of US adults are getting their news, at least sometimes, from social media, according to a new study of American news consumption habits from the Pew Research Center. Which social media, to be exact? According to the research, which surveyed 8,842 US adults between Sept. 25 and Oct. 1, Facebook—which has steadily deprioritized news content—is king, with three in 10 respondents saying they regularly get news from the platform. YouTube was also a major source for news, with around a quarter (26%) of respondents stating they regularly get news from the site. Instagram was next with 16%, while 14% of respondents said they regularly get news from Tik…
The social media boom of the last decade is over. It’s not that people are no longer using social media — they are. They’re just using it less, and engaging differently."

Per GWI, 54% of people use social media to connect with friends and family, and 27% of people use social media to keep up with news. What they aren’t necessarily hopping on social media to do is be sold to. However, social media platforms need users to spend as much time on their apps as possible and to continue buying from advertisers in order to remain pro…
One of the growing options in the last several years is the option for Cloud. Certainly for IPS, it's the default option - you almost need to go out of your way to find the pricing for self hosted. This matches the reality of the wider web. Cloud hosting isn't a trend that is starting. It's the trend that's already established. When you think about Reddit, Discord, Slack, Facebook Groups, Amino Apps, MeWe, Substack, etc. they are all "cloud" platforms. No one self hosts their own instance of Facebook, you just start a group on the Facebook cloud platform. The reality is that most online communities on the wider web are cloud hosted. Most group owners want p…

Forums are dying, if you believe what forum admins have been saying for 10 years. There are definitely huge elements of truth. Forums are not as popular, they are not the first choice for many users who want to start new groups, and there are a lot of structural and technical drawbacks of forums. Rather than list all the reasons about why forums are dying, what are some reasons why forums can survive? From my vantage, many of the "weaknesses" can be turned into strengths. For example, the categories and boards that make the forum layout hard to penetrate for new users provide a strong sense of organization. I leaned into that sense of organ…
Do you own a community? Is it a single niche or multi-niche? Why did you choose a single niche or multi-niche for your forum? I like single niche forums, that's because I know what to expect there and I do not have to bother with topics that I do not like. I do not want to be in a community where users create posts on almost everything. It will be really difficult to find quality content in these communities.

In online communities and forums, two key players come into the spotlight: community moderators and community leaders. These roles, though distinct, are pivotal in shaping the success of these digital spaces. Let's dive into these roles with a focus on simplicity. 1. Moderators vs. Leaders: Simple Distinctions Online communities feature two fundamental figures: moderators and leaders.

You should enable this. If you look closely, everybody is putting their personal websites and communities under the "Profile URL" because it get's displayed under their avatars, whereas Community URL's don't, and you have Signatures disabled. I'm about to do the same, lol 😉
