A few comments about chat. I both like and dislike it. I like it as it does get people more involved and it shows peoples personalities. Other sites I've been on had a morning coffee hello and it really felt good to get in contact with others that have similar interests. Also, I've seen that chat site devolve in to screaming and name calling.
That said if we can successfully monitor and moderate it I think that it will be a good tool for us to connect socially and to bring in more members.
Heck I decided to pipe up because of it! Just my $0.02….

So far today four new member signed on and immediately posted in the chat room instead of in the forums.

I hope that doesn't become a trend. Since not more than a handful are in the chat room at any one time there often won't be an immediate answer, which may cause frustration and the person not to return or move into the forums.

Just an observation.

OTOH...if they're new, they may not have much to contribute yet but found the chat a good way to get to know people here? Just a thought anyway

Oh, I get that. But two did have forum topics, which they posted after prompting. One had not even been to the forums so I gave the link to the one that best suited the topic.

I do like the chat room for social chatting and getting to know people, stuff best kept from clogging up the forum threads.

Interesting. On my iPad, the chat room button is gone. I presume it just isn't compatible.

I'm still left to wonder what is in it for SN to have the chat room. Don't they really want you to watch the ads on the forums to sell product and generate ad revenue?
