Chat Rooms - Introduction
What is a Chatroom?
A chatroom is a space online that allows users to chat with others. A user is usually requested to register with a host site before entering the chatroom for the first time. Chatrooms and community groups are places where users share common interests or discussions on common themes. They are open spaces and many chatrooms are not moderated to filter or monitor the behaviour of the users.
When using a chatroom , remember that one of the attractions is that users are anonymous! Some users will pretend to be someone or something that they're not and so it is a good idea for children to be supervised when using chatrooms.
