Students amazingly gaining focus via chat rooms

The era of smartphones and computers gave rise to a very interesting challenge in academia. University students were already losing interest in lectures and worse now the chat took over formal writing. In the face of such situations, campuses introduced the bright idea of creating chat rooms where the student can get their ideas instantly heard and virtually engage with campus activities via their smartphones and PC. Since then a lot of research papers have published that these chat rooms gave rise to an increase in idea sharing and interest in University matters. In some cases students find themselves doing a lot of writing on lecture content. They did not recognize chat rooms as generating real academic writing. Just by having fun typing ideas to their friends and teachers, they would be initiated into brainstorming on courses out of class. It is unbelievable how the flow of content and ideas that might even not rise during a lecture or any classroom activity takes over these chat rooms, thus benefiting both students and teachers.

Brainstorming and relationship building in businesses

As a modern application of chat rooms, businesses are creating free chat rooms, giving space to their employees to contribute to the day to day creative life of their business. Some of these chat rooms are restricted to a handful of personnel giving rise to specialized teams chatting on projects. They end up coming up with amazing ideas and develop them on the go without needing to be present at the same desk. If you are a small business owner you need to try public company chat rooms. In these, all the employees of the company get to engage on the platform and you can easily manage and see how the inner public relationships are growing within your company and take action accordingly.

Some of the employees who are just shy or avoid face to face interactions with the business owner get to have an easy way to communicate their ideas. You never know where your best opinion might come from, hence the absolute need for an inside chat room for a business.

The rise of unlimited support groups

People who used at a time to feel lonely and forced to deal with their particular issues themselves have now found a medium to share and feel heard. Lately, a lot of chat rooms have been created to support and create awareness on a lot of issues that were not even heard of in some parts of the world. People sharing the same problems such as addiction, can join these chat rooms and drastically change their lives. These are not limited to getting rid of bad behaviors only, some teenagers with special health problems around the world join chat rooms created by nonprofits. They find relief and can thus be oriented into better members of the future community, even if they are in places they cannot get special attention.

Connecting with clients and doing product testing.

This is a very cost-effective method for market researchers to exploit the internet and its resources, to reach any location and test their different market-oriented hypothesis. Free chat rooms can be created by businesses or engage with a third party already specializing in these types of matters. Marketers will only require certain geo-targeting to engage with unlimited potential customers all over the world. This, in particular, gave rise to easy digital product testing, helping new startups to focus their budget on making their products worthwhile.

Fun brain-challenging text games being kept alive

The other chat room members will have to guess an object you picked in the space where you are located. The rules might involve giving clues after a false answer or limiting the number of attempts. Another popular brain challenger benefiting from this internet tool is “Abbreviations.” This game can be a little advanced as it is for chat prodigies. The rules are simple; one of the chat room participants gets to give an abbreviation of what he is doing, for example, TSAS for Taking Snapshots At School. The other members will try to find out the abbreviation using the provided mysterious clues; trust me, you can get lost into playing this one. The other versions involve internet acronyms and company names, slogans you name it.

Finally, the Kiss, Marry, Kill game, the king of chat room games. Your chat room may refer to it with another name. Basically, the rules are one of the participants will mention three names usually, celebrities and public figures, and depending on the chat room members' opinion, they will choose who they would Kiss/ Marry/ Kill. This one, in particular, can give rise to interesting arguments where people go to extremes to memorize facts about celebrities’ events and thus without knowing it trains their memory during their free time.
