What ls Chatting?

Chat is a text-based communication that is live or in real-time. For example, when talking to
someone in chat any typed text is received by other participants immediately. Thereby, a
feeling similar to a spoken conversation is created. This is different from other text-based communications such as e-mail where it could be a couple of hours, days, or weeks to receive a response.

Online chat in a less stringent definition may be primarily any direct text-based or video-based (webcams), one-on-one chat or one-to-many group chat (formally also known as synchronous conferencing), using tools such as instant messengers, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), talkers and possibly MUDs.

The expression online chat comes from the word chat which means "informal conversation". Online chat includes web-based applications that allow communication –often
directly addressed, but anonymous between users in a multi-user environment. Web
conferencing is a more specific online service that is often sold as a service, hosted on a web server controlled by the vendor.
