The place of forums

What Is Forum or Forum Posting?

I have noticed that there are various names being used in referring to a “forum”. Some quarters calls it “Message Boards, Bulletin Boards, Threaded Discussions, Discussion Boards, Discussion Groups or Conferences.

However, it is generally called forums.

Therefore, a forum can be defined as a place where people have the ability to post any form of message in the form of threads and reply to other people thread messages as well.

These posts are organized into threads where people discuss a single topic.

A member of the forum posts a message which is visible to every other member in that forum; once this message is read; there is the option to post a reply, which also is visible to the entire forum members.
