We always here of online chat rooms, but the question is, do we know what chat rooms are, and how they work? Well, I will help with that.
A chat room basically is a platform on a website or a website itself where people interested in specific topics come to chat. The chats can be inform of text, voice or even video records and photos.
For one to be a member of a chat room, then they need register and choose a user name of which they will be identified with.
This username will be displayed during chats when they contribute to a topic at hand. Once you have registered, you will be able to see the list of members of that particular online chat room, of whom you are likely to interact with.
To start chatting, all you need to do is type the content you would like to share into a text box, then press enter. Everyone else will be able to see the message and respond to it.
This is how conversations then develop. When you get into a chat room and don’t contribute anything, then this is called lurking, all you can do is to read other people’s chats.
Every online chat app also has its own rules, regulations and acronyms to be used by the members.
It is always considered impolite to use capital letters to send a text in a chat room, this is considered harsh. When a certain topic is in progress, it is also impolite to stray off.
All you need to do stay in the topic and contribute every time you a chance. Interrupting other members is not allowed and you should also never try to monopolize a conversation or insult anyone.
