Delphi Forums will supply online community services for Advance Internet, a division of newspaper and magazine publisher Advance Publications. Using Delphi's services, the more than 7,000 community groups already using Advance Internet's Community Connection tool can now add interactive message boards and chat to their sites. Advance Internet's sites include New Jersey Online, Cleveland Live, Mass Live and OregonLive.
The Advance deal comes a day after Delphi announced relationships to supply bulletin board and chat services for Xoom.com, an online community, and News Corp.'s News America Digital Publishing, which publishes Fox News Online and Fox Sports Online.
