A BBS means a Bulletin Board system. A BBS allows users to connect to it by dialing to it. In the past this was the only way, but with the advent of the internet you can also connect to a BBS by using a hostname.


A BBS is a computer system running software which allows users to download software and read files stored on the system. A BBS was a mini social network of the olden times. People could play games talk with each other and also as a plus download software. While most BBS's were free some used to ask for payment. The BBS is controlled by a system operator(sysop for short).
