Screenshot from the 4chan .org imageboard. An imageboard or image board is a type of Internet forum which operates mostly via posting images. The first imageboards were created in Japan , and many English language imageboards today are centered on Japanese culture . They are based on the textboard concept.
4chan is an English-language imageboard website. Users generally post anonymously, with the most recent posts appearing above the rest. 4chan is split into various boards with their own specific content and guidelines. Registration is not required, nor is it possible (except for staff.) Launched on October 1, 2003, its boards were originally used for the posting of pictures and discussion of manga and anime , as the site was modelled on Japanese imageboards.
