Chatting online is becoming part of life for internet users.
If people attack your anonymous identity it doesn't impact your "real self." You are free to say the things that you need to say in order to heal from trauma or other mental health related experiences.It's like a virtual cocktail party, where strangers gather to flirt, argue about politics and sports, ask for advice, talk about shared hobbies and interests, or simply hang out.Chat rooms have played an important role in the evolution of interpersonal communication over computer networks. Then came USENET, an e-mail based newsgroup started in 1979. Some bulletin board users wanted to interact with the group in real time instead of waiting to reply to an ongoing message thread.There is a trend of posting your feelings on Facebook and on Twitter.The trouble with that is that your family and friends have the potential to judge you. In this way and anonymous chat room can be helpful because you are surrounded by people who don't know who you and are able to give you impartial advice.For example, survivors of sexual abuse often do not want their attackers to know that they are speaking about this highly stigmatized issue.
