Usenet Or Internet Based Newsgroups I

Newsgroups are text based Internet discussion and file sharing media. Multimedia newsgroups are growing in number. In newsgroups a person can post a message and attach files to the message. If of common interest, the message will create a discussion thread to propagate the discussion further. These can be broken down in two main hierarchies: alt groups are for beginners, whereas all others are for advanced users. Fun groups such as under hierarchy like rec.. also exist.
