    Default Bbs

    BBS (bulletin board system); Internet Forum
    Do they mean the same thing?
    BTW, here in Japan some people seem to be using the Japanese equivalent of just ‘Board’ for this. Do you do that too? Also, are there any other terms for this?
    Thank you.

    They're the same, though I don't hear BBS used much nowadays- I think it might be a bit old-fashioned. You do hear 'board' sometimes and the BBC uses 'message board'
