Even if you aren’t an avid internet user yourself, you likely know that online message boards and online chat rooms are different.
Online chat rooms have live communication appearing on the screen. Instead, online message boards involve communications that may carry on for days or even weeks.
Although online chat rooms are a nice and easy way to talk, it is important to remember that not all online chat rooms are safe.
That is why many parents often opt for message boards instead, but is it really a safer option?
Are you the parent of a teenager or a child who would like to use the internet to meet and communicate with others who share similar interests?
If so, your child may be interested in using an online chat room.
There are also more detailed and themed discussed that occur on message boards, as opposed to chat rooms.
Common topics discussed include homework, parents, pets, music and sports.
