Over the years, I have discovered that people have various reasons to visit a forum. One of those reasons is that people are constantly on the lookout for new information. People want to learn new things simply because it makes them feel better. I am also one of such people because my mind constantly keeps looking for new things to learn.
Another reason to visit forums is to have some fun. Since so many people visit forums, it is no wonder that hanging out on forums might seem like a great idea to meet new friends and cultivate old friendships.
