Depends. Rusty N Edies BBS was local to me and it was very popular just 
because of file sharing (which is what ultimately made it shut down).

My first look at the WWW came from there when they started offering web 
portals and I purchased Mosaic 1.0
Once the WWW took off BBS died pretty quickly.

I thought the fact that file sharing became popular is what did in
BBS. Log in and leave a message is only a few minutes. Download
some file @ 300 baud and a few hours is gone. Of course you just have
a single phone line and 50+ people a day one can never log in with
a long distance number.
