Aol’s chat rooms were the original 'ask me anything'

When the text was cleared, the users couldn't see what they had typed and they lost the benefits of the bold text telling them what others saw. As workarounds, you sometimes create conversations or initiate chats via other platforms which can be difficult to manage. InAOL. The other people in the creator's original thread receive a message informing them that the creator has moved to the new thread to discuss the topic in question.

As Java chat rooms were growing in popularity, chat rooms available through instant messaging services began to be developed as well. This made it possible to allow us to give people within a channel character by character updates and still retain the ability to display channel transcripts in the overview see Figure 6.

This addressed the problem of transcripts in a character by character world. People greatly preferred the notion of boxes. They also liked the color coding as it gave an easy reference for finding where people roomd and moving there. But there are great advantages to the text based approach.

Text based chat rooms do not scale. With chatrooms replacing many face-to-face conversations, it is necessary to be able to have quick conversation as if the person were present, so many people. The main advantage of this approach is that users can see when other people are speaking thus making them less likely to interrupt. chwt

Conversations in no time

We tried yet another de. In one transcript window, users saw the transcript of people in their box and in another they saw a color coded transcript of all other conversations see Fhat 5. Kurlander, D. This reduces network traffic and produces a readable transcript. Finally, we allowed the user to double click on the boxes to pop up a balloon which displays the most recent utterances in the transcript.

As the server broadcasts back the characters, the corresponding character is made bold to inform the user that others have received it as well. Best of all, it runs entirely on your browser. This same de was configured to send multiple characters at a time or to send whole sentences at a time. Participants were given a collaborative task to solve together in each chat room.

The Scaling Problem Text based chat rooms start to break down as the of users grows. The last utterance was updated in a regular interval. Figure 6: Balloon Avatars with Partial Update Field We also devoted much of our time to different means to provide peripheral awareness. To give peripheral awareness we added an overview to the window. Netscape, Inc.

They wanted to be able to type and see an arbitrary of characters. This chatting panel is made up of two parts, the transcript display and the text entry field. With regard to user tests we discovered that it is important to have a real world task for users to perform in the chat room. This brings up a dialog asking the creator to enter the topic for the new thread, after which the thread is created and the creator is moved to it.

However, group admins have the ability to limit chat creations to the admins of the group only. On entering this chat room, the user was placed in the default thread.

If users liked what they saw, they could choose to switch to that thread. People liked the responsiveness of telephone style interfaces, but such a system can only support a few participants at a time. Some users found the secondary transcript window too cluttered, but were able to understand it a lot easier.

These systems connect a small of users, usually just two or three, with a high bandwidth, frequently updated connection. In a large scale system, this shift could happen dynamically based on the network load to sacrifice wgen of updates for responsiveness. The user types a complete sentence in the field and sends the text by pressing the return key.

This helped, but seeing all other conversations overlaid was uninformative to users because it was hard to determine where the utterances came from. We then attempted to combine the best ideas of each type into each metaphor. Therefore we went from explicit thread creation using a button to the spatial notion of a thread as a colored part of a room.

The challenge for text based chat rooms dod to approximate the experience of being in such a party. In the real world, people can easily manage concurrent conversations.

These systems usually have a standard layout. The term chat room, or chatroom, is primarily diid to describe any form of synchronous Visual chat rooms add graphics to the chat experience, in either 2D or 3D and Janus Friis were working on together to develop the online portal for employers.

We hope that our work can be directly applied to improve the usability of existing chat systems and that it points out the need for further research in this domain. We will start with an overview of the chat rooms available today and an analysis of the scalability problem. Colored Squares Represent Actual Thre Discussion Our tests wuen that use of thre was very effective in keeping conversations coherent. They often saw conversations they might be interested in, but weren't sure.

Skype reached to million user mark within a month until its launch. They could only see other conversations near them, and these conversations appeared over top their own. Since network responsiveness has enormous impact on the user experience of chat rooms, we decided that it was imperative to do a full implementation of the system as opposed to a UI mock up.

Also having a scalable input field can help balance the network load. The next section describes our prototypes and the changes they went through during the de. The bandwidth requirements are low, much lower than sending audio or video. The de also severely limited the amount of peripheral awareness each user had. The second wave of tests focused on the scalability issue by creating real world situations in which multiple thre would arise. When the text was received back, the whole field became bold.
