Do you remember when online forums were the cutting edge in online community building tools? While forums still have a place on the Web there are so many richer community building experiences. Forums are still being used and Twing looks to bring them up to par by aggregating online forums. Twing offers a forum search and adds community features to surface the 'hot items' in the forums.
Twing indexes online communities, discussion groups, bulletin boards and forums to help surface content that might have been otherwise buried on the Web. It also creates a destination to look for forums on the Web and adds its own blogs and forums to try and foster additional conversations. Twing is crawling the Web looking for forums using its knowledge of forums to better index them. Twing is a bi-product of Accoonna Corp a lead generation and search solutions company with offices in Jersey City and South Plainfield, N.J., and Shanghai, China.
Personally, I am not huge fan of forums as I usually find them tough to navigate though but they house lots of useful content. I am happy to see Twing looking to uncover some of the buried but useful content from these hidden gems of the Web.
