I do agree a lot of things have moved to social media, however you just can't build the same kind of community or conversation as you can on a forum.

People need everything in one place so they move to social media. They really don't care for small forums and what they need is something popular so they can act.

I still don't think you can replace the community and engagement side of a forum though.

Socia Media is officially on the climb, a forum I was a member of has since moved to the world of facebook group. - tougher to moderate and make unique to be honest with you. I'd love to stick with the forums.

I wouldn't say take over, but sites like facebook, discord and others have without a doubt hurt forums. I know its kind of hard opening up a forum compared to a discord channel these days.

I think there will always be a userbase for a traditional forum. Not everyone likes Twitter or facebook, but wants a more trusted source with their data. (I know that's laughable to say but it's true)
