Virtual Chat World
The virtual chat world may be just what you need if you are shy or don’t have time to meet others in the real world. A chat world will allow you to communicate with others in real time. The virtual environment you chat in will be vibrant and realistic. And as an added bonus you will chat using a creative representation of yourself, an avatar.
Chat worlds are an outgrowth of message boards and chat rooms. These methods of communication allowed users to email each other back and forth or leave messages for one another. A chat world lets you interact with others as you would in real life, your avatars communicate face to face in the virtual world.
Old School Chat
In the past, just a few years ago, chatting on the internet was limited to chat rooms, forums, message boards, and social networking sites. The new virtual world chat environments are very popular.
Communication in chat rooms is similar to chatting through email –users enter a message and send it to another user. The other user can answer the message in the same way. When this type of communication first hit the internet it was new and exciting. With the advent of other communication methods in recent years chat room interaction has become slow and clunky.
Message boards and forums operate in the same manner as chat rooms. Users can post messages to each other and wait for their messages to be answered. Social networking sites – Chemistry, MySpace and other sites - also use this method of communication.
The chat world has broken down the “fourth wall” and allows users to chat in real time while existing in exciting virtual environments. Instead of posting messages or emailing each other virtual chat world users communicate in real time. Click here to learn more!
Users in the chat world create an avatar, a 3D representation of themselves. This avatar will interact in the virtual world with other avatars. Click here to learn about avatar chat. Chat in the virtual world is accomplished via text or speech. Text users simply type in what they want their avatar to say and it appears as a speech bubble, chat window/bar or as plain text in the interactive online world. Headsets and microphones let virtual world users chat in real time using speech.
