Swiss Switzerland forums?

Swiss Switzerland forum, as in German/Swiss German (or French) speakers Switzerland forum with general off topic, political and news discussion.

So far I've discovered only such a forum that has some amount of posts - off topic section of FCB Forum:
http://www.fcbforum.ch/forum/forumdi...php?6-Offtopic

Where are the others? Reddit? Facebook groups? Newspaper forums?

The comment section of 20 minutes is a shit show. EF suddenly looks very reasonable and quality compared to any of those.


The Swiss don't need an online forum to discuss politics. They use social media to talk to their contacts. Because it is 2018.


(there used to be some popular ones on bluewin. No idea if they are still running...)

Re: Swiss Switzerland forums?

There used to be... but I think most/many died off when facebook came about. The process was quick because of the comparatively smaller and more regional userbase I guess. Facebook groups are also used by older generation people that never used standard forums in the first place.
But the younger generation is probably mostly on Whatsapp groups since they are great for off-topic and politics/news with the added value (or not) that you are talking with people you know closely.
