Chat and Share
Online chat may refer to any kind of communication over the internet that offers a real-time transmission of text messages from sender to receiver. Chat messages are generally short in order to enable other participants to respond quickly.
The term can thus mean any technology ranging from real-time online chat and online interation with strangers (eg, online forums) to fully immersive graphical social environments. The primary use of a chat room is to share information via text with a group of other users.
