The highly digital nature of our society allows us to be connected to people all around the world. One such way that people connect is through joining a message board—the more frequently used message boards end up forming a type of virtual community or family online.
Online communities dedicated to vaping allow newcomers to get insider information, and for veteran vapers and enthusiasts to exchange ideas.
Components of Vaping Message Boards
Most all message boards work in the same way. They are hierarchical, tree-like and divided by a given subtopic under an umbrella heading. There are three basic and common aspects to e-cigarette message boards:
- Discussion of e-smoking vaping basics
- Encouraging other members to switch
- News about e-cigarettes
The basics section(s) typically include discussions of different e-cigarettes. This discussion includes favorite brands, favorite flavors, basic functionality and much more. Having a community of members providing suggestions for products can help new vapers save money in the long run by helping them to not purchase products that are inferior.
And despite their dramatic rise in popularity, e-cigarettes are still foreign to many people. They can be confusing, even frustrating, to operate, especially for someone who has used traditional cigarettes for many years. However, with a dedicated community of vapers offering invaluable insights and encouragement, adopting this alternative can be much easier.
The other big value of online vaping and e-cigarette communities is news, including new research studies or any regulations being considered by federal, state and local governmental authorities. Some of these regulations like sales to minors make sense, but others attempt to treat vaping and e-cigarettes like traditional cigarettes.
Being a part of an online community can help vapers join forces to fight to keep electronic cigarettes favorable in the public eye.
There are several different message boards that cater to the vaping community. The top three message boards are The Vaping Forum, E-cigarette Forum, Vapers Place. The first two being traditional message boards with multiple forums on various topics. Vapers Place broadens out to include a podcast.
