Fascinating facts and interesting stories

World’s largest web forums

Message boards, or forums, have been used on the Internet since 1969 – even before the advent of the first web browser or the World Wide Web in 1990. Forums are popular among web users looking for extra help or information or simply wanting to interact with fellow surfers. The most popular forums get some two million posts per day.
