We have several options for people to chat with each other. I think most people are coming while they are looking for text chat rooms, we have several of those, including:
We also have forums where you can read messages that others have posted, and if you are a registered member you can post messages that others can read even if you are not online at the time. This way you can choose to get notified if others message you back via the forum replies.
We are working on testing a new system that lets you watch others and share your live video from your place to others. Our goal is to have this working with mobile phones, tablets, and regular computers, and as many places in the world as possible. It’s very close to public release, so check back here soon!
