Helping To Support The Chat

To the detriment of everyone, today's huge social media sites are dominating and consuming the average internet user's time online, so that chat sites specifically as a whole are being used less and less. In case you think that we are being biased, hear it straight from a former executive of Facebook.

It is important to clarify the fundamental differences between Social Media sites and chat room communities and this was covered fairly well at SocialMediaToday.Com

Social Media.

  • Bound together by pre-established interpersonal connections
  • Each connection has his or her own social network
  • Characterized by a spider web-like "network" structure

Online Communities.

  • Bound together by a common interest or topic
  • ANY person can be a part of ANY community
  • Characterized by a more complex overlapping and "nested" structure
