Introducing Hoax-Slayer Social
Social networking is evolving into one of the primary driving forces of the Internet. And why not! Above all else, the Internet is about communication and the exchange of information. Over the last few months, I have been gradually integrating a site commenting system into Hoax-Slayer. Many Hoax-Slayer articles now have commenting available so that site visitors can discuss the issue at hand right on the page. The commenting system is provided by Disqus and is so far proving very popular.
To complement the existing comment system I have now created a social networking component. Hoax-Slayer Social gives Hoax-Slayer visitors even more opportunities to interact and exchange information. The system combines forums, blogs, chat and a number of other features into one, easy-to-use interface.
Hoax-Slayer Social replaces the previous Hoax-Slayer Forums as well as the site blog.
To effectively thwart scammers and deal with the endless stream of misinformation, half-truths and outright nonsense that clutters cyberspace, I think we all need to become hoax slayers. By joining Hoax-Slayer Social and submitting your examples, ideas and opinions, you can help in the fight against scams, hoaxes and spam.
Hoax-Slayer Social is a relaxed and friendly place where members are welcome to go off topic a little as well as discuss more serious hoax and scam related issues.
And, of course, Hoax-Slayer Social is completely free!
