OUR CHAT ROOM IS HERE and now open with a designated HOST each evening!!!
We now have our CHAT ROOMS open for our members. Chat is easy and fun! Think about sitting home in your comfy clothes and you are doing nothing and wishing that you were not alone. Log into the chat room and talk to people you know and others that you have not yet met! Or catch up with members that you have not seen in a while because either of you have not been at the same event to see each other.
Our Chat Room will now be hosted each evening from 6:30 until 9:30 . Most evenings there Will be TOPIC CHAT from 8:30 to 9:30 . There will be OPEN CHAT each evening from 6:30-8:30. Open Chat is where you log into the chat room and talk with whoever is in there.
You may meet members from other groups and members in our group that you have never met before! This CHAT ROOM was designed to help you make new connections with others!
Think about it like this…you see someone new that you would like to meet in our group, write them an e-mail and invite them into the chat room to talk to them.
PRIVATE CHAT is also possible! There are instructions at the bottom of the chat screen that instructs you on how to have a private chat with someone logged into the chat room. That means that Mary and Rich can be in the open chat room and Rich can click on Mary’s name and make a private chat and invite Mary to chat privately. Talk about a dating tool!
TOPIC CHAT is just that…TOPICS! There will be DATING CHAT, DIVORCE CHAT for those freshly divorced and getting the lay of the land on dating after divorce, WIDOW/WIDOWER CHAT, FOODIES CHAT, CHARITY/VOLUNTEER CHAT, BUSINESS NETWORKING CHAT, WORKSHOP CHAT AND GUEST CHAT.
GUEST CHAT is where we invite someone into the chat room to host an hour. THAT COULD BE YOU! We would say that a certain member is hosting this hour and if you would like to yuk it up with that member and others members, you can log into that Chat.
We are inviting other Meetup Groups in to host their group’s chat! (IF ANY GROUP WOULD LIKE TO HOST A CHAT HERE, PLEASE CONTACT FENA AT [address removed] to set up a time to host your group. That is how we will all meet new people. Our chat rooms will be open to other groups! Many of you belong to multiple Meetup groups and why not invite those groups and their members to come join in the fun? You don't have to be a member of Friends First to visit our chat rooms! We are so happy to have this technology to share with everyone! It is cool and so much fun!
HOW TO SIGN UP FOR CHAT
First of all it is free! NO $$$ WE WILL HAVE SESSIONS ONLINE WHERE FENA WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO USE THE CHAT ROOM. LOOK AT THE CENTRAL CALENDAR FOR THOSE TIMES
Go to www.FriendsFirstSocialGroups.com and once the site opens, click on CHAT on the Menu Bar. When that opens, you will see a text box at the bottom of the screen. JUST UNDER THE TEXT BOX in a little conversation bubble is the words CHATANGO…it is written in little letters so it is not easy to see. CLICK ON CHATANGO and create an account with the name that you would like to use. We suggest that you use YOUR first name. That way when you are in there chatting YOUR name and YOUR picture will represent YOUR text.
Once you create the CHATANGO ACCOUNT then you are ready to go into the chat room and chat! We will be hosting an hour of HOW to USE OUR CHAT ROOMS, starting over the weekend!
To see the list of SCHEDULED CHATS, go to our CENTRAL CALENDAR onwww.FriendsFirstSocialGroups.com and click on Calendar. There you will see the listings of all the chats scheduled.
Would YOU like to host a TOPIC chat on a subject or an OPEN chat? Please send your request [address removed]
We look forward to chatting with you!
