I have been a member of internet forums, rather than networking sites. Are there any studies of this kind into messageboard forums?
Forums are getting more and more popular. Multilingual ones like www.worldjumper.net are springing up.
It seems as if cyber-communities can provide real human comforts - and strife. However, from my experience, a harmony does develop within a self-sufficient forum and this is very interesting as my auto-reaction is to think that strangers who do not meet would be at logger-heads all the time.

Yes, I’m sure there are lots of studies. I’m not surprised over the “harmony” in such forums. I’ve been member in several forums for many years and have always been impressed over the helpfulness of the members.
