Communication With A Click - Guide to Live Chat and Chat Rooms

One of the basic needs of modern times is communication. We always communicate with our friends, relatives, parents and loved ones with different kinds of medium. Computers and internet have made the world like a small village where everybody is connected to everybody else at the click of a button. Sounds easy, right?

How Does Live Chat Work?
Unless you traveled to the future and have no clue what it is about, I would assume that you know most basics. It usually involves installing a software, mostly free, and the newer chat applications usually run on an internet browser. Find one such Live Chat client, become a member and chat away. Sounds too easy? Let's talk more then.

Chat Rooms
So we said chat away, right? You can do so individually or in a group, where the latter usually takes place in a Chat Room. Great for making friends, talking to strangers, making fun of them and of course being made fun of without realizing it. Finding one that is appropriate for you is the key, and oh, not getting kicked out, too. If you play your cards right, you might even end up finding yourself flirting online.

Pimp Your Chat Room
Change the default colors, fonts, backgrounds, themes, profile pictures and whatever else you are able to, Immediately! There are a million fish in the sea. You want to make an impact and quick. And those smileys and emoticons, make sure to have some customized and don't refrain from using them. For those who don't know what a smiley is yet :) Show happiness, anger, love, embarrasment or surprise with these little critters. All of these features will help you create your virtual image so just like anything else, moderation is the key. You wouldn't want to look like you just poured all of your foundation on your face, elbows and back of your ears right?

Decode Live Chat Crypt
So you are in a chat room or someone has just sent you an instant message and it says ASL and you don't have the slightest clue what it means? ASL is almost always the opener of a chat conversation and it stands for Age, Sex, Location. Caution Caution! Don't volunteer this information out just like that. You don't know if you are talking to a Lab Monkey in an experiment room, just yet. Other crypts include;

ASL - age, sex, location (Use it with caution)
ROFL - roll over floor laughing
LOL - laughing out loud
IMHO - in my humble opinion
LMAO - Laughing my a** off
BRB - be right back
TTYL - talk to you later

TTYL y'all!!
