One of the strongest driving forces behind Ninja Post forum software is the desire to help users build new friendships. In this day and age, the “friendships” borne by Facebook and other social networks help classmates reconnect and colleagues (both old and new) stay in touch. However, the word “friend” is usually too strong to describe such relationships.
By contrast, we believe there is nothing more effective than a forum community for inspiring true friendships among people who are passionate about the same topic but would otherwise never cross paths. Friendships thanks to forums that last for years and compel cross-country meet ups are not uncommon. Fostering such relationships—we call them strong ties—is incredibly gratifying, and a compelling reason for any site owner to launch a forum.
Another, more subtle driving force behind Ninja Post forum software is the ability to create weak ties that link all community members. By dint of joining a community, new users automatically have a shared interest with existing members and create a weak tie. Thousands of weak ties band together to create a motivational force field. This force field propels members in their quest for truth, search for entertainment, and ways to improve their lot in life. As the old adage goes, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
