The same term being used in two different areas, let the confusion ensue!

There are five core sharing areas in a Ning social network: Blogs, Forums, Videos, Photos, Groups.

The term "discussion" is made confusing because it is used in both Groups and Forums. They are however completely separate from each other.

Group discussions will not appear in the Forum discussions; and Forum discussions will not appear in the Group discussions.

Here are the most visible difference to help distinguish:

Group Discussions:

Forum Discussions:

Another difference is that discussions in the forum area allow you have a category.
