It was a great setback for chat lovers when in July 2012 Marissa Mayer, the current CEO of Yahoo, announced that Yahoo chat rooms will no longer be available.
The reason behind it was the availability of chat rooms for the people around the globe as Yahoo used to provide chat rooms by regions and countries like US Chat Rooms, Asian Chat Rooms etc.
With the commercialization of internet and the advent of email service, the need to communicate swiftly felt strongly than ever before.
A very first dedicated chat service that was made available to public was Compu Serve CB Simulator in 1980 followed by many email service providers in late 90 including Yahoo Inc. Some of the service providers provided this facility within their email service while others provided in a separate form of chat rooms like Yahoo. This chatting service has taken many other shapes like Orkut, Facebook, Viber, Whats App and Skype but the utility of online chat rooms remained there when it comes to a quick chit chat with strangers.
