A complete history of the rise and fall — and reincarnation! — of the beloved ’90s chatroom.
If you are a ninety’s kid, there is a great chance that you have seen the age of chat rooms. In the early and late 2000s, before the advent of Facebook as I shall put it. Messengers were the way of connecting with people anonymously.
MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, IMO, AOL, was the most popular and used of all.Yahoo Messenger was used by millions of people and its chat rooms were very popular among the youngsters and teenagers. But as the time goes by, things change that we all know. Yahoo messenger was shut down in 2010 and MSN messenger died along the way as well.
But has that made any change to the connection of different people on the web? NO. The method may have changed but this world is still a global village. Before we used to add people on chat rooms but now we use Facebook, Twitter or Instagram instead.
Times have changed, the technology may have changed but things are still the same. We still have a way of connecting with others but just in a different and more upgraded kind of way.
It can be said that these social media websites are the modern free online chat rooms or a more upgraded version of the previous ones.
