An internet forum, also known as a message board, is an online discussion platform where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. Forums allow for asynchronous communication, meaning that users can post and respond to messages at any time, rather than in real-time like in chat rooms. They are often organized around specific topics or communities and are used for a variety of purposes, such as discussing hobbies, sharing news and opinions, and seeking or providing information and support.
