Blogs are for authors (or columnists) to produce and publish original content. Discussions, in contrast, are less formal. A discussion can be original content or it can be a seed. A seed is an article whose original content was written by a third party author. Seeds always reference the original content with a link. Group discussions are like discussions except that these are localized within a group. Only group members can participate in group discussions. The three types of articles are handled very differently by the platform. This makes it difficult (especially for new members) to figure out how to publish...Loading...
