Discussion forums provide an ideal space for the group members to openly share and discuss ideas with each other. This feature is active by default, unless de-activated by the Group Host in Group Settings.
All discussions take place within a group. Any group member can initiate a forum discussion, and there can be any number of forums. Forums may have moderators if needed and can be appointed in consultation with group members. However, this is not essential for each and every forum discussion.
Only the forums in Public Groups and the Private and Hidden Groups in which you are a member will be accessible to you. The forums in Public Groups can be viewed by all visitors to the site, including non-members.
