How to Use Chat...to open the door to new friends and business contacts,all over the world for the price of a local phone call. |
What is Chat?Along with e-mail and the World Wide Web, Chat is one of the most favoured features of the Internet.
If you have friends or family members in another part of the country--or even in another part of the world--you can arrange a time to chat with them and have a lengthy "conversation" in real time for the price of the local call that connects your modem to the Internet. There are no long-distance charges involved.
When using a chat application, you type text into a window on your screen. The person with whom you are chatting types back and the two of you converse in this way.
For a list of sites where you can chat on the Web, visit Yahoo's Chat Directories section and click on CHAT. Chat rooms on the Web, however, can be slow and confusing. The best programs to use for chat are mIRC and ICQ. These two programs must be downloaded from the Web and installed on your computer. Both programs are FREE.
This IRC (Internet Relay Chat) software is easy to install and use.Learn about and download mIRC.
With ICQ always on your taskbar, you will know immediately if your friends, business associates or family are online, anywhere in the world, even if they’re only checking their e-mail. You can then send them a chat request.Learn about and download ICQ (I Seek You).
