Online or internet forums are different from blogs and traditional websites because users are allowed to register as members and participate in publishing posts. In most forums, posts are written by ordinary members and reviewed by admins before it will go LIVE or brought to the front page. A forum is more interactive than Blogs so most readers use it as a platform to air their views in certain topics.
In Nigeria, blogs are more rampant but the number of forums are gradually increasing making the internet community more interesting.
Some of the qualities of best forums in Nigeria includes;
- Huge information database on a wide range of topics
- Easy accessibility
- Huge number of active members
- High rate of member activities

Without the above qualities, a forum will find it difficult to make it to the top in Nigeria where the competition is getting tougher by the day.

I personally, learnt a lot of programming, internet marketing and good knowledge of cars via nairaland. In fact, some couples that are married today met on this wonderful forum.
Nairaland is the fastest forum in Nigeria that loads under 2 seconds thanks to its cloudflare and good host.
It’s beautifully designed to make it accessible for all members and unregistered visitors. It’s posts ranks well on search engines and it’s one of the most trusted internet forums in Nigeria already featured on BBC, CNN, Wikipedia and other high authority sources.
As the name suggests, myschool is the most popular online forum for Nigerian students. On this forum, students get latest updates on JAMB, UTME, Post UTME, Exam time table, exam runs, Nigerian school news, gists, students connect and lots more.
Stats has it that one out of every 10 Nigerian student has visited this forum in the last three years. That’s a massive number of traffic if you ask me.
The site is accessible, has decent SEO and it’s very active with fresh school news from almost all the schools in Nigeria.
Earlyface is another popular online forum in Nigeria that delivers timely news updates, online business tricks, free browsing cheats, school gists, relationship and so on.
It started as earlyface.com but later changed to earlyface.com.ng due to reasons best known to the owner.
The site has a blog section and a forum section.
Nigeria’s Creative Talents (NCT) forum is primarily focused on tech and webmaster related articles. The forum has hot topics on webmasters, blogging, programming, graphics design, business, entertainment, education, health, fashion and so on.
Although, the forum is gradually loosing its popularity, traffic and alexa rank probably because of the change in url, it’s still among the top forums in Nigeria as at today.
Jackobian is Nigerian largest Cryptocurrency forum owned by Precious Mmeso, a student of Federal Polytechnic Nekede Owerri. It started as a normal student forum but later, the owner added Bitcoin and altcoins trading and articles into it.
Today, Jackobian forum has many talented admins including the popular “Gad” of Jackobian who moderates contents posted by other members.
There was a “scam”claim sometime ago by a visitor who narrated how he was scammed on the forum but I believe that is the the only forum where visitors are being scammed. As a matter of fact, in Nairaland forum, there are so many scams and fraudulent activities by bad-minded members. That’s is why it’s important to trade with caution and always make use of escrow method while doing business with a stranger online.
However, Jackobian forum is known for promoting Cryptocurrency, ponzi schemes and other online business in Nigeria. This is why it’s the first choice for most online internet marketers seeking latest information in the crypto world.
