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.
- Basic hierarchy such as alt.windows9x etc.
Advanced hierarchy such as Comp or MS.Windows9x etc.
