Explanation:
Message board = foro

Chat room = salón de chat (así lo define MSN en su página)http://chat.msn.es/UTF8/find.asp?cat=GE

En el IRC se llaman "canales"
(http://www.ciudadfutura.com/irc/

Yo diría simplemente "chat" y "foro", como lo dice la anterior respuesta.

Tablón de anuncios, Sala de chat


Explanation:
For the first one, you can use Tablón de Anuncios, Tablón de Mensajes, Panel de Mensajes, etc.
Chat Room, would be in correct Spanish Sala de Charla, but "chat" is a term so popular in internet for Spanish communities, so I would translate it as Sala de Chat, as is in many websites.

Good luck!

foro, chat


Explanation:
Estoy de acuerdo con esta propuesta, es la opción más extendida en España. También es interesante ver la opinión de la Asociación de técnicos de Informática (ATI):

Message board: pizarron de anuncios, chat room: cuarto de charlas


Explanation:
Message board: no se sabe aqui si se trata de mensajes escritos directamente sobre el pizarron o nada mas un tablero (tambien aceptable) donde se cuelgan los mensajes.
