With the closure of msn chat, chat rooms have slowly started to disappear, msn chat did have thousands of people online at one time and it was free, unfortunately it was closed due to fears about children chatting online. Msn slowly withdrew their public chat rooms then went on to slowly withdraw them from their msn communities section.
When msn chat closed then this gave chance for a lot of chat room owners to try to accommodate these people, unfortunately that doesn't seem to have worked, while there are many free chat rooms most of them are of poor quality and have no moderation.
A lot of websites that claim to have free chat rooms don't have them at all, in fact 9 sites out of 10 that say they have chat rooms just to attract people to their sites, this seems to be a favourite tactic of dating web sites, trying to get people to sign up so they can try to persuade people to give money to them, this is misleading and frustrating.
People tend to be attracted to the main sites on the net now, either the top providers like Lycos or Chat Avenue, or the sites that top the search engines, itís a shame people don't shop around as there are obviously better sites out there.
World of Chat has worked really hard to accommodate people and give people what they want chat wise, we are also safe as we are fully moderated, we have come a long way and still have a long way to go, but we will always be a free chat room and we hope our quality will show through in the end.
So yes world of chat will always be free, our aim is to be the number 1 chat room on the net letís hope we get there!!!!
