Imageboards could be most simply described as a bulletin board focused on pictures instead of text posts; they share many of the same structures, including separate forums for separate topics, as well as similar audiences. However, imageboards are much more transitory with content—on some boards (especially high-traffic ones) the thread deletion time can be as little as 24 hours or less. The most popular English-language imageboards tend to revolve around Japanese culture such as CG artwork of anime. In Japan, where imageboards are many times more common, topics vary widely, including trains and news.
Imageboards are also different from online galleries in that most of the works posted are not made by the poster, but instead are taken from other online sources
