But today it is scattered with posts by people like myself going back to see what’s happened to their favorite chat.
As the chatter stated in his post there was no Facebook or smartphones, Chat Sites were the social media of the day.
We’ve been seeing the overwhelming presence of chat rooms pushed further and further into a cultural corner due largely to the changing needs of the mainstream, and new technologies honoring those needs and suggesting new ones in tandem.
All of that said, today’s online playground sees social networking megagiants like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter holding the most visible real estate, while traditional online chatrooms take a quiet space by the fringe.
The repeated breaches were too much for the Digi Chat company to continue to patch and they simply stopped releasing updates or patches.
As the internet progressed to its adolescence, however, the dynamic of chat rooms changed (the frontier virtual spaces were being progressively gentrified and monetized, and the fringe rooms were becoming exclusively disgusting), this coincided with the upcoming of new virtual domains for social networking (in the first major way with Myspace, and in the second, final way with Facebook).I must admit I am torn as to how I feel about these developments.
