This may sound stupid ... But, what exactly are and the difference of a on-line blog,forum and bulletin board?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Physically? Not much.
They're all Active Server Pages or Web Pages.
It's the use that differentiates them.
A bulletin Board is where people post their notices or statements. No replies are expected.
A blog is a personal mini Web Site which can be linked to a lot of other pages or Sites, and is run by the Indivual. Here, you can read what that person has to say and post your response etc.
A Forum is a public Platform where people gather to do something, like here at Yahoo Answers, where people usually come for help.
Hope this was simple enough.

A blog is one persons personal web log talking about whatever they want and people can sometimes leave comments or give feedback.
A Forum is where you post questions and discuss a specific topic (whatever the forum was started for).
A Bulletin Board is a computer system that lets users dial into the system using a terminal program, for downloading and uploading software and data, getting news, posting messages......this was around before most people used the web and way before p2p, torrents or social web sites.Source(s): personal knowledge Wikipedia can give you a more detailed answer
