What is an imageboard?
An imageboard or image board is a type of Internet forum which operates mostly via posting images.
Imageboards, similar to bulletin board systems, are used for discussions of a variety of topics. The primary focus of imageboards, however, is directed away from text posts, and is instead placed on picture posts. The two share many of the same structures, including separate forums for separate topics, as well as similar audiences.
The most popular English language imageboard is 4chan that was born in 2003, a year before Facebook, as an image and message board in the style of a similar Japanese board called 2chan, or Futaba.
