ngSometimes abbreviated as NG, a newsgroup is a location where individuals can discuss a particular topic by posting messages on a news server. In many ways, a newsgroup may be similar to a forum, where users can read posts from other users and submit their own. A good example of a newsgroup is a "computer help" group where individuals assist each other with computer problems. Another example is COLA, where Linux information is announced.
