SweetMom, I think that it is mostly shouting out and FaceBook kinda stuff. I chat some in Dew Dad's and chatcity, but don't seem to have or make the time to chat much. The whole energy of chat as I know it has changed.
I check this room a lot and sometimes just to say hi.
OMG tom, I'd forgotten I even made this post. Thanks for replying even though MY reply is MONTHS later. LOL.
I don't do Facebook. Never have and probably never will. I chat at Delphi. It used to be Talk City but they merged years ago. I STILL miss Lycos. *sigh*.
You are right though, chat has definitely changed over the years. I miss so many of you but after Lycos everyone spread out and it was difficult to find everyone. All is well with me and I hope the best for you.
Hello SweetMom, there are a lot who do not care for facebook. We understand. As for Delphi, they are still using a java based platform which will sometime be blocked by almost every browser and operating system. This is why we've been working hard to roll out a new chat platform that requires NO java or flash.
It would be nice to see everyone get back together as they used to be. I've seen it mentioned many times but for some reason their words don't seem to be sincere or else they would make an effort to reconnect through chat. With our new platform we are genuinely trying to make that easier. "Word of Mouth" or typing in this case seems to be the best way. Just who will get the ball rolling?
