Facebook is Testing Chat Rooms

Who is the old guard of the web remember when the most amazing thing the internet was the possibility to communicate with anyone from anywhere in the world in real time in chat rooms. Now, Facebook, wanting to become the most dynamic message exchanges (and make people even more time on the site), announced that it is working on a tool for creating chat rooms on the social network.

The tool obviously has nothing revolutionary. But can in fact make the interaction between users a little more interesting, especially among strangers (the curse can not stop!) Or become a barn for discussions and live blogging.

The rooms can be created by anyone; just click “host chat”, an option that should get along with spaces to write a note published or upload photos and videos. Then appears a window similar to the normal FB chat, where the conversation takes place.

Facebook already has a chat option with more than one person, either with members of the same group or random people inserted in the same message. The difference is that now all friends will be able to become aware of the room – which also gets its name, instead of just “message” – and can get into it.

The chats will be posted on the wall of the person who created and can be opened, which allows any person to access this friend without an invitation, or restricted to certain groups or guests. She will act as moderator, which may restrict the number of people in conversation or expel unwanted members.

If it sounds familiar, it’s because it is: the Google Hangouts does just that. But for now, it has more resources; Facebook’s chat rooms only accept text.

The feature is still in testing phase with a limited number of users, so probably a lot of things will change, as adoption of mobile support and the ability to insert images, emoticons and stickers Facebook Messenger. After all, what would be the sense of not having it?

FB confirmed that chat rooms are being developed, but did not speak to when we can expect.
