A forum is mainly a online bulletin board where users discuss about a topic. Every user’s comment can be published in the topic that he wants it in and the topic shows to be a dialogue, Forum are generally used for discuss about various matter. Forums that can talk about technology, education, health, games, music etc. Every forum have some moderator who look up forum rules and regulation. If someone break discipline then moderator can take action by banning users. Actually forum is a place for gain and share knowledge and experience.

Blog is also a place for share about specific topic, where users can put their comment. Blog is like an virtual note book where everybody can read and leave their comments on. Maximum people use or create blog for discuss about any matter, advertise about any product, political discussion etc.

Thanks

Forums or what was called bulletin boards are older than blogs. Each comment was organized in a “thread” and each discussion or “thread” can last up for months or even years. Forums are usually made up of members of like interests and have a moderator that coordinates or makes sure everybody follows the “forum rules” – as discussions can sometimes spark arguments.

A blog is more like a webpage but has built-in templates that you can customize according to your preferences. A blog is more personal, and can sometimes be more of like an online diary where you can post your thoughts and opinions on a variety of topics or a certain event. People can leave comments, like forums but forums involve more people and are more similar to a conversation compared to blogs.
