Webgroups facilitates access to public newsgroups and mailing lists,
and bring them to the web in a readable and searchable format.
The Power of Newsgroups
Unlike other medium such as Twitter, Facebook, etc..., newsgroups is a non-proprietary system, which mean no single organization controls the content of its users. When something is posted via the newsgroups protocol, it is propagated to numerous servers which then provides the end users with its contents. Otherwise, if a sole entity is responsible for its content, then that content could be modified, censored, or even lost all together. With all this, newsgroups can be an obscure and inaccessible place. Webgroups propose a more ideal place for gathering information from this medium.
