I manage a forum. I am wondering if it would be beneficial to show how many users are currently logged in and active in each category.
My thoughts are YES. I know I like to feel that I'm not alone on a site. But what if only 1 person is active on some parts of the site? Does that look bad considering the forum has over 1 Million members?
Are members more/less active on forums when they see how many users are currently in a category?
Has anyone tried this both ways? Anyone have any experience with this? Pros and cons?
