Depends on your level of involvment/interest. It's really hard to keep a focused discussion going on any of the places you name, and they are, by definition, evanescent. Forums provide archives of knowledge that can be searched. Social media and microblogging, not so much.

I agree with you 100%. I'm just curious what the traffic numbers look like across forums. Are they healthy?

For $1000, nobody would expect any espresso machine to be the BE ALL, END ALL machine.

You seem to be confusing "no coffee geek" with "nobody".  Plenty of bodies would expect that from even lesser priced machines.

Again, depends on the specific forum site.  Some are.  Some are not.

Of course, that's true but it isn't that interesting of an observation either.

There are lots of forums out there and I'm guessing somebody has studied this and come up with some interesting statistics.

It's like if I asked if people are driving fewer miles than they used to. It's true that some are and some are not, but that answer doesn't tell you much.
