IMDb Is Shutting Down Its Discussion Boards

"]IMDb Is Shutting Down Its Discussion Boards


According to IMDb, it plans to launch new features in 2017 to help users “communicate and express themselves in meaningful ways,” but it didn’t provide details on what those might be.




Not sure it will be as nice as the message boards. I hate that boards/forums are disappearing. I love them tons better than social media. --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Arrgh! And we all know the whole thing will be deleted rather than just closing it. Facebook, Instagram and the others make me feel depressed. Just reading meme after meme after political pic emoticon

They already delete old threads, so there isn't much of a difference ... other than not being able to create new threads for discussions. Losing friends who either don't hang out at other places where you do, or who don't know where to find you once the boards are gone.

I never understood the point of deleting topics emoticon

It's practically impossible to build a repository of knowledge on most social media. Forums are simply better for that.

And I personally believe that Runboard is one of the safest places to actually discuss written work. But that's just me...

Me either. They could have archived the really old ones for viewing though. To see what was discussed, and to maybe start a new thread with a link to the old one to continue it.

Facebook is better than Twitter, but not by much. I'd choose a blog over them any day if all message boards were wiped out. Lord I hope that doesn't happen.

I agree. Try finding a thread on Facebook that's more than a week old. It's so much easier to do this with a message board or forum.

Absolutely! Here on Runboard, you don't have to worry about something going public that was previously marked as 'private'. We also don't allow 3rd party apps to access friend lists or email addresses like Facebook does.

Facebook is only better than Twitter because of Twitter's 140-character limit. Good luck finding a post you made on Facebook just a week ago, though, much less a month or a year.

Yep. Forums are certainly better for archival purposes. I didn't realize this could happen but last month I found out my Instagram account was deleted, because I hadn't been on it for a few months (it said that).

Forums are better for ongoing project purposes as well... Imagine trying to work on a book or anthology or thesis in ANY "Social Media" site!
