How would it be if someone allowed everyone to start their own forum as a hosted solution ? I mean, on a very large scale with lot of advertisements and hype. Maybe not as extensive as Flarum. But something like what FlexBB used to be. Or something very similar to those WordPress forum plugins as the base.
I think it will be a big rival to Facebook groups. Everyone who runs their own small forums would move to it.
A collection of light weight forums ? This is actually an excellent idea. But it is not easy to make it practical. If we can do it, that is certainly going to be very useful service and money spinner. You are saved from the trouble of enormous bandwidth for the photos which social networks need. It is more of a knowledgebase.
SuperUser / StackOverflow already has it for almost every category. So you take lessons before you start yours.
Yes, something like that. We can call it a forum network. They have very few forums / categories though. I was thinking about accumulating all those small forums owners under one umbrella.

Certainly not a social network. I would not dream of attempting to kill Facebook, which is try to. 😉
Abhi accumulating all those small forums owners under one umbrella.
Sounds like an ambitious plan. Not hard to implement either if you have enough resources.
You will have to deal with a lot of security and legal issues though. You will have to be responsible for the content. Moderating which is a mammoth task.
People will also try to hack you all the time. A good security team will give you piece of mind.

Yes. Anything big, you would need official legal support. I can't imagine how the security part will spin up. A good system admin will be a good start.

Why will they do that ?
