But it is not good for answering general questions - like what is the best DVD player, or which are the biggest cities int eh USA or should I leave my boyfriend.
We have had general interest and specific theme forums (like this one) for years, where people could ask those questions. You can still search google and find all the answers to your questions. But the operators or FB, Twitter, and other social sites want you to believe that the best way is to use their sites so you can reach the entire online world in one single transmission. Sounds like the lazy man's approach.. let's just ask the world instead of doing a little digging.
