Your confusion is not knowing the 'real' difference between a forum and a social media environment.
They are clearly and well defined two different things.

We are living in an 'instant gratification' world.  No longer do people have patience to wait for or read thru multiple articles of information to find an answer. 


Sponsor a giveaway via a forum, and watch your numbers climb in 'give me something for nothing' entries.  With any luck, you'll get 1% of those entries to return as regulars to your forum.


Forums are clearly a left over of the old BBS days.
