What is the full form of IMDb
IMDb: Internet Movie Database
IMDb stands for Internet Movie Database. It is an online database of information related to movies, televisions shows, actors, directors, biographies, plot summaries, reviews, video games, and related information. The information stored on IMDb comes from different sources such as filmmakers, film studios, and other official sources. However, most of the information is provided by IMDb users themselves.
IMDb checks the information before it is saved in the database. However, the website also allows users to report mistakes so that they can be fixed and the accuracy of the data could be maintained.
