I would have fixed it but was not sure what it is supposed to be communicating precisely Ann Vole (talk) , 24 August 2012 (UTC) Article says "Recently much chat room and instant messaging technology has begun to merge as the dominance of the big three instant messaging providers (AOL, Yahoo and MSN) have tied chat rooms directly into their instant messaging interfaces.".But what *is* the difference between Chat Rooms and IM? In both pages emphasis is given on the difference with forums and with e-mail, but not to distinguish one from the other.This kind of chat is a way to avoid buddy list chat. You might also want to notify the vandal with the appropriate warning.There may be enough vandalism to request semiprotection Wikipedia: Requests_for_page_protection.While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with these policies.
--.254 (talk) , (UTC) The article erroneously remarks that IRC was part of a standard UNIX build. While most IRC servers and their early clients were primarily written on and for UNIX systems, neither were included in any standard UNIX distribution. ICQ has made an option to random chat   but it's not very popular  , whereas there are some other attempts ... I noticed two apparent bugs on this page which appear to be some kind of "Graffiti" Part way down, "Smelly Poopers" appears in line with the text under one of the sections. Maybe just a glitch, but it seems unlikely to be random. No need to discuss it, just go ahead and remove the vandalism.

In 2007 the company removed chat rooms from AIM and launched a stand-alone app for Windows users.
In 2008, AIM came to Apple products with apps for the i Phone and Mac. Eventually AIM was integrated into OS X, allowing users to access the service, but it was too late.
I think chatroom (or chat room) is a general non-technical term, popularised by the media.
