An online platform is a website or application that allows users to interact with each other, access information, or perform various tasks over the Internet. Online platforms can serve a wide range of purposes, from social networking and communication to e-commerce and entertainment.

Some examples of online platforms are:

Social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter that allow users to connect with friends, share content, and communicate with each other.

E-commerce platforms such as Amazon and eBay, which allow users to buy and sell products online.

Video streaming platforms such as YouTube and Netflix, which allow users to watch and upload videos online.

Educational platforms such as Coursera and edX, which provide access to online courses and learning materials.

Job search platforms, such as LinkedIn and Indeed, that allow job seekers to find open positions and connect with potential employers.

Online platforms often rely on user-generated content, advertising, and subscription fees to generate revenue. They also often have terms of use and community guidelines that govern how users can interact with the platform and each other.

BITS experts have used online platforms in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
