  • 10. Notes
    • Many chat rooms let you read what is being typed without needing to reply yourself – this is know as lurking
    • Some chat rooms let you send a message to one of the other people in the chat room privately – others in the chat room will not see it.

    • Shorthand is common, eg:
      • LOL – laughs out loud
    • As are smileys (or emoticons):
      •  
    • Some chat rooms are moderated – there is someone checking what people are talking about and removing rude or inappropriate discussions
