Online Chatting

Chatting - On the Internet, chatting is talking to other people who are using the Internet at the same time you are. Usually, this "talking" is the exchange of typed-in messages requiring one site as the repository for the messages (or "chat site") and a group of users who take part from anywhere on the Internet.
(from searchWebServices.com)


Using Yahoo Messenger, I’ve been chatting with a lot of people lately. Most of them I’ve only recently met online through this blog. Most of them young couples with future plans of starting a new life overseas.

It’s quite refreshing to be able to talk to them. You get to learn about their dreams, their plans, at maging mga hinaing nila sa buhay. And because they're young, para akong nare-rejuvenate. Very infectious ang enthusiasm nila. Nahihirapan man sila sa kalagayan nila ngayon pero di sila sumusuko and they don’t just leave things to chance or luck. Gumagawa sila ng paraan para sa ikabubuti ng kanilang future. Saludo ako sa inyo mga tols.

But much that I’ld like to chat with more people, I’m afraid I’ld have to limit my time engaging in this activity. At the rate this is going I might not have time anymore to practice my Ironman skills. One time I was chatting with 3 different people all at the same time and we chatted until past midnight. Groggy na ako kinabukasan. So apologies to those who I might not be able to entertain in the future.

But you know what? I found a very important lesson in life about chatting. It’s a lesson in communication. You know how sometimes we talk to people who like to monopolize and hi-jack conversations? Gusto mong magsalita pero hindi ka makasingit, di ba? At least sa chatting, you learn to take turns talking. Now, if only people converse the same way they chat online... Maybe, that would make us understand each other more, and the world will be a better place because of that. I also wonder if you have a nagging wife or husband, ano kaya kung sabihin mo sa kanya, “honey, buksan mo na lang ang Yahoo Messenger mo, mag-chat na lang tayo!”.

  • para sa'kin naman balance lang sa'kin ang chatting.pag sinasabihan na ako ng dad ko na subra na ako sa babad ..sa pc...tumitigil na ako kasi syempre...mahirap ng di sumunod.saka di ko buhay ang chatting or blog ...aaminin kong "libangan " mas gusto ko ma-maintain ang buhay ko na nakikipaglaban sa buhay lumalaban sa prublema,ngumingiti,umiiyak,naglalaro ng baseball,at naglalakad pakikipag-usap sa tunay na pamilya at mga kapitbahat,kaibigan.

    online friends?kung anong turing ko sa tunay na buhay ganun din sila magsinungaling man sila o hindi basta ako totoo.

  • Ako hindi ako nahilig sa chatting gaya ni lws.Alam kong nakaka-addict yan , kaya ayaw ko ng simulan. ang tinggin ko lang kasi sa chatting masyadong nagtatake ng time mo. At since hindi mo kilala ang ka chat mo parang feeling ko puwede lang akong bulabolahin.Isa pang bagay , nawawala ang focus natin sa pamilya instead na sila ang kausap natin mas nagfofocus tayo sa computer at nakikipag-usap sa iba. Ang chatting kasi tuloy tuloy yan at pasarap ng pasarap ang topic labang tumatagal.
    Kaya Ka Uro bawasan mo na ang chatting at kahit alam mong understanding si esmi ,siguradong minsan naiinis din yan lalu na kung nagpupuyat ka. Baka isang araw makita mo nalang nakatapon na sa labas ng bahay mo ang mga gamit mo. Patay kang bata ka!!!

  • like everything else in life,chatting should be done in just measure.
    its a very useful tool to meet people, to learn a lot of things and get informations about things that concerns you.
    of course you have to have discretion on whom you should chat with.
    and be sure you discern when its time to say "thanks for the time!"nice chatting with you"
    ka uro kelangan mo na ng taga sagot sa mga email at chat questions.(hint)pede mo na ako bigyan ng job offer!=))

  • Teacher Sol,
    Just be careful in letting your child to chat. Maraming luko-loko sa internet kaya ingat lang . Baka mabigay ng anak mo ang mga info. nyo.Ingat lang.

  • When hubby went to Iraq Ka Uro, wala kaming communication for awhile. Nakakatakot kasi ni hindi mo alam kung ano na ang nangyayari sa kanya. I remember his first phone call and the relief I felt. Then came snail mail, OK na rin. Then nung tumagal sila doon eh nagkaroon ng internet. You could just imagine the joy in my heart nung nakapag-chat kami online na may bonus pang webcam. At least kahit papano nakita nya kami dito, at nakita namin sya. Without online chatting siguro eh mas naging mahirap para sa amin ang deployment sa Iraq.

  • hi lws,
    kaya napapabilib mo talaga ako, very down to earth ka.

    settejr,
    naisip ko na nga rin yon e. kasi kapag may-ka-chat ako, tatanongin sa akin ni esmi, "o sino na naman ang ka-chat mo?" tapos makikisam din siya sa chat. eventually siya na ang nakikichat.

    red,
    kung pwede nga lang sana, di ba?

    mam sol,
    may point din si settejr, medyo magingat sa mga ka-chat. pero kung si LWS ang ka-chat, okay yan.

    rhada,
    maswerte na nga rin tayo in this day ang age, ano? tama ka ng at least with chatting ang the internet, we are able to get in touch with each other. tulad nito, although hindi chat, we are still able to leave messages to people all over the world na parang magka-kapitbahay lang tayo. galing din ng technology, ano?

  • you won't believe this but i started to learn how to chat just a few weeks ago. 3 weeks ago yata. late bloomer. hehe. it's fun though. :-)

  • I used to be able to have time to chat but lately, it is used to talk to good friends to keep in touch. I find that sometimes in chatting you are not able to express thoughts fully and it is taken the wrong way. But then again, it is one of the best invention ever to keep in touch at a much cheaper cost. :)

    by the way Ka Uro, thanks for bringing my blog problem to my attention. I wouldn't know it if you didn't say anything. I hope I got it fixed. :) thanks!

  • hi ka uro... if i would choose between chatting and blogging, (although hindi ito ang issue, i can say i like blogging better. i have written 'bout it on one of my posts which is Chatting vs. Blogging. concurrently, blogging is eating my time and is really an interesting activity, with all the pros and cons. as red had mentioned, it should be done with limitations. one should also be very careful in handing over personal info. you can never tell. mustamos, ka uro?
