Hello,

Do you think forums are heading in a new direction and are becoming more and more like social networks until basically they are social networks with a forum feature?

Thanks.

Basically. I mean XF is like one big social network, and more forum software are trying to go that direction too.

I like the way you think Terry, but Forums are heading towards social networks, no-one said social networks were heading towards forums. One day or another it is bound to happen, Xenforo is definitely closest right now.
