The IMDB has announced that it is doing away with its iconic message boards and private message system very soon – from February 20th in fact.
IMDB says the boards “no longer provide a positive, useful experience” for its 250 million monthly users worldwide. They say the decision to retire a long-standing feature was made only after careful consideration and was based on data and traffic.
Increasingly, IMDb customers have migrated to IMDb’s social media accounts as the primary place they choose to post comments and communicate with IMDb’s editors and one another.
