Instant Messaging (IM-ing) is online typing, in real time. MSN® Messenger, Yahoo!® Messenger, and AOL® Instant Messenger are common IM programs.

Chatrooms are online sites where multiple people can type messages in real time. Chatrooms can be found all over the internet, usually related to a common topic of interest.



  • Predators luring kids into dangerous situations.
  • Online bullying/harassment.
