Discussion boards, which can be called by many other names (good for it) such as discussion discussion forums, discussion groups, online forums, and message boards (whew), refers to online bulletin boards. It’s like a virtual cork board that millions of users (often sharing the same interests) can post announcements and opinions and get replies both negative and positive. One doesn’t have to post and just “lurk” or read the posts (unless stated otherwise in the forum rules) Or you can just read the board. Anyone can make a discussion board by availing of online forum services. There are various forum software available depending on the programming language used.
