What is lacking in social networking now?

This thought started with a Quora question – what is still missing in social networks – I believe it is the category-domain knowledge based discussion groups. Forums today do this, but they are very hard to find, and its hard to compare which/where is the best place for me to make my contribution.

Twitter is too ephemeral and length restriction make it impossible to have a meaningful discussion.

Facebook is best for friends & family sharing – its not a platform for meaningful discussion about a specific topic.

Quora may have some elements of what I’m looking for, but I have a hard time seeing how it will evolve beyond Silicon Valley.

So that leaves an easier way to find and participate in category-domain knowledge based discussions where it doesn’t matter so much who you are, or who you know, but what you know.

    What can be done to help people find forums and compare to allow users to determine where/how to contribute?

    I think it is very humbling not to be able to do what you want when you want as much as you want. We used to be able to do that as chleridn and now I find each stage of life brings me new adjustments. And some of my illnesses like fibromylgia and degenerative disc disease have limited me before my time learning to accept the things you cannot change and listen to your body can be a hard lesson to learn at times but well worth it when you finally do. I find if I can focus more on what I CAN do than what I can’t then I listen better! Blessings to you. Thanks for your prayers and friendship. You are in my prayers as well.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really hdrlay ever do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the issue is something that not enough folks are speaking smartly about. I am completely happy that I came across this blog
