Newsgroups

Newsgroups, which are also known as forums, are a place where people with similar interests on a particular subject can connect with each other and share ideas, get questions and answered, and to simply discuss the particular subject of the newsgroup. Every newsgroup is centered on one particular topic such as dogs, or gardening, or cars, or wireless technology. Newsgroups can be about any topic or subject. There are literally thousands of newsgroups that exist on the Internet.

People who share a similar interest in a particular subject, post comments or share knowledge about that particular subject in the newsgroup. All you have to do is join the newsgroup to participate in posting comments and sharing your knowledge. To join or to participate in a newsgroup, you must first subscribe to it. Also, since there are thousands of newsgroups, you might need to search for the best newsgroup that interests you by using search engines.

Now that you know something about newsgroups, let's move on to email, which is something you will need to even subscribe to the newsgroups and to communicate with people all over the world.
