    Forum is a right place where we can share our idea and we can answered the various questions? If you join good forum which is deliver good content to you then your knowledge will increase drastically. Because people are learn any thing quickly if they are interest in it. But I have a question in which way forum can be disadvantageous?

    I'd like to share only advantages of a forum. There are a lot benefits, some of them are;
    You can get some fresh information about your interests.
    Get Solutions or minimum suggestions of your problems or issues on any topic.
    The New thread in various sections allows members to ask questions and get answers.

Its seem like there is not any disadvantages of this thing. Bu it is in the hand of people anything can be misused so it can be.

    Other than discussion, forum also provides a market place for online sells, services and advertising. Its a charming place for both buyers, sellers and business entrepreneurs.

    Forum is where people share different views on a variety of topics. People who face similar problem may come across your thread and get the solutions they are finding. Forum has a freedom of speech as you can say voice your opinion in your own chatting style. The disadvantage is that joining a forum also make you susceptible to hackers and people who use vulgar language to respond on your thread.

    There is no such disadvantages of a forum, since it is built with Good things, maintained by expert members. In forums you will get a lot of help because of more experienced members. Using forums we are able to promote our business easily than any other method including social networks.

    I can't find any disadvantage of forums using by us, may be black-hat forums are harmful.

    Regarding disadvantages, the basic risk is that spammers could try to garbage your forums with posts promoting their own products or bugs.
    While, the admin can limit the spam postings and keep out spammers unless their posts are approved by forum moderators.

    I also don't see having a forum with a disadvantage or two. There could be spamming activities but that should need some reasons. Because even posting to a forums these days need a fixed amount of time to submit next post. So, it cannot be a software after all.

    Having forum is also a good way to earn money. You just need to start a forum, get some easy paid posters to post around various topics for a few months and later you can either sell it to someone for a huge profit or use an Adsense account to enjoy the real money with the click income.

    Different than the conference, the forum also produces a marketplace for online sells, services, and promotion. It's a beautiful spot for both clients, sellers and industry managers.

    Sure, the forum is much better to manage your advertisement. There is a live conversation. Thereby, you can try this tool to keep your business on hygger.io. His name is Hygger. Our company use it for a few months, but it done as well. Now I hate Delegated Admins CMC because of this thing.
