I love forums too.. I've disliked FB for a while... If it wasn't for the fact that I'd be cut off from a bunch of family and groups without it I'd delete it.
The fact that discord keeps all the old messages when you're not there to see them (unlike IRC) that fills a bit of the void left by forums being huge. It's a shame it's so centralised but at least it has a lot of friendly communities.
I like twitter but its really hard to keep up with.
