Know The Basics About Online Chat Rooms

by Steve C. Content Writer

Information technologies and communication systems are the hottest issues of the modern world. When the World Wide Web was invented, no one could have guessed its true potential. At first it was just a source of any kind of knowledge that exists. But soon it became a global platform that brought people from different parts of the world together. As the size of mobiles reduced and GSM technology, call conferencing and video calling emerged, mass communication never reached its true potential through these systems. It achieved the capability of worldwide influence through social networking and various chat rooms. Here, internet surfers could search for and interact with just about anyone in the world. Public chat rooms served as virtual places where anyone could enter and voice his ideas.

Online chat rooms began their journey to prominence through text based instant messaging system. As early as 1980, such a service was invented where people could log in and communicate with other people online on the same platform. Later, the flexibility, rules, regulations, and versatility of chat rooms evolved. In today's era, internet surfers can create their own cyber space, choose their own avatar in their image, personalize and live in a virtual world where they can interact with other users. One can video chat with someone from across the world, voice call and hold conferences. The feature that attracts most people to such chatting modules is the ability to create aliases and chat with strangers. Online dating sites have become very popular among the internet surfers as they provide people to explore the possibility of finding someone of the opposite sex.

Many people, especially teenagers more like such online chat rooms. With a more graphical interface and jazzy add-ons, these services have succeeded in attracting even more users than before. Psychologists have expressed concern over the fact that a considerable faction of the population prefers to live in this virtual world than the real one. On the positive side, it provides an outlet for socially awkward, shy and introvert people to come out of their shells and explore an unknown part of them. Many people claim that online chatting has helped them evolve. Analysts warn that getting addicted to chat rooms can have a very negative impact on the user but in a more controlled fashion, they do help in broadening one's scope.

Video chat rooms use graphics and avatars in their user interface. Many online chat services also provide an option to play games. In recent times, advanced online video game sites have also emerged which enables multiple users to play on a common gaming platform, build a virtual world in its true sense and interact. Though the primary way of communication in chat room still remains text based, voice calls, webcams, smiley, graphics and online games have prevented it from becoming outdated and boring. They have given a new meaning to dating, cybersex and cult culture. It is the most popular way of sharing ideas and discussion.
