Online discussion groups

Online discussion groups are situated on websites, and support users to enter into conversation with one or more people by typing in messages.

This takes place either via a bulletin board/forum system, or a live chat system. The main difference between the two is that the former is not dependent on all contributors taking part at the same time whilst the latter requires participants to be present at the same time as messages are relayed instantaneously as they are typed and entered, usually powered by Java.
