How many chat programs do you use? Chances are most of us at least have one Google Talk, MSN, and AIM account. That’s not taking into account Yahoo, Facebook chat, and whatever else people happen to be using these days.
So when you need to have a group chat, whether it’s a bunch of friends, a study group, or even a business web conference, it’s going to be hard to get a consensus on which application to use.
Rather than have to sign up for yet another account, you can all use any one of the following websites. No sign up is actually necessary to use them, and creating your own personal chat room couldn’t be easier.
TinyChat is one of the best options for private chat rooms available today for several reasons. It’s feature rich – with voice and webcam support, whiteboards and desktop sharing. Creating a chat room is as easy as choosing a name for your room, and a nickname. You can also sign in using your Twitter, Facebook or MySpace credentials.
Creating a room gives you moderator status, which allows you to choose certain settings – like requiring user logins and the ability to ban people from your chat room.
