Online Persian chat may refer to any kind of communication over the Internet in Persian language that offers a real-time direct transmission of text-based messages from sender to receiver; hence the delay for visual access to the sent message shall not hamper the flow of communications in any of the directions. Online Persian chat may address point-to-point communications as well as multicast communications from one sender to many receivers and voice and video chat or may be a feature of a Web conferencing service.
The first online Persian chat system was called Persian Chat, created by Jafar Klari. It offered several Chatroom channels, each of which could accommodate up to six people, with messages appearing on all users’ screens character-by-character as they were typed. Persian Chat was very popular among Iranians users into the mid-2000’s but later they decided to turn off all servers due to abuse on 1st Jan 2001.
Even today, relatively little is known about the discourse produced in on-line communication contexts. While there is a growing body of literature on sociolinguistic variation in Persian chat for example, other forms of computer mediated communication (e.g. Chat Farsi, Iran Chat.) have received less attention.
Why Persian Chat ?
Persian Chat rooms usually have stringent rules that they require users to follow in order to maintain integrity and safety for their users. Particularly in rooms for children, rules usually do not allow users to use offensive language, or to promote hate mail, violence and other negative issues. Also Persian chat rooms often do not allow advertising in their rooms or flooding, which is continually filling the screen with repetitive text. Typing with caps lock on is usually considered shouting and is discouraged.
Sometimes chat room venues are moderated either by limiting who is allowed to speak (not common), by having comments be approved by moderators (often presented as asking questions of a guest or celebrity), or by having moderation volunteers patrol the venue watching for disruptive or otherwise undesirable behavior.
Yet, most commonly used Persian chat rooms are not moderated and users may type what they personally choose to send.
Persian chat is becoming more popular each day and there is a need for Farsi chat on the internet.
The benefits of Persian Chat
Visual chat rooms add graphics to the chat experience, in either 2D or 3D.These are characterized by using a graphic representation of the user, an avatar and educational material most often developed by individual site owners, who in general are simply more advanced users of the systems. The most popular environments also allow users to create or build their own spaces.
Some visual Persian chat rooms also incorporate audio and video communications, so that users may actually see and hear each other.
