Electronic discussion and news groups

For a graphic example of how interactive the Internet can be you need look no further than the Web's thousands of discussion forums and newsgroups. These are good places to network, as well as keep in touch with latest developments. With these services, you can not only search websites for information, but also communicate with people you probably will never meet, getting answers to obscure questions that only they might know. Electronic discussion groups can be either e-mail or web-based. They automatically distribute an e-mail message from one member of a list to all other members on that list.
