An online community which I find positive is student room. This website has many different forums such as studying queries. When I was doing my A-levels, I sometimes looked through other people’s posts who were studying the same subject. It really helped as they put up links to good resources. There is also a section about universities. People who want to go to a certain university or do a particular course can start a discussion where they ask those who have already done so on their opinions. This can help in the decision process. Another section is about relationships where someone may have a problem and people tell them how to get through it. Although it’s useful I find that one of the limitations is that many people who have a solution don’t know what they are talking about if they hadn’t gone through the problem themselves. Therefore, their advice may not be helpful or realistic. There is a section for health and there are many discussions under mental health. It does say on the website that it shouldn’t be used to replace a GP but I find it brilliant that if someone is feeling a certain way they can find others who may give them tips and advice.
