Interactive computer networks now enable millions of Americans at home to communicate and acquire information through "electronic bulletin boards." They also provide an insight into their users' interests.

For example, Prodigy, a major on-line service with more than 2 million members, has over 40 bulletin board subjects, including books, television, medical, money, pets, arts, sports, food, science and technology.The newest bulletin board is for "Trekkies." It lets fans of the long-running Star Trek TV shows exchange every kind of information on their favorite topic.
