Chatting online may be dangerous for some people who do not know how to use it, but we can use online chats to maintain contact with family members or friends overseas. It can send messages instantly rather than through letters, which will take a long time, or calling them, which is expensive due to overseas calling rates.

It is a debate that is obviously for opp team.Because while you are chatting with someone you cant resist your temptation especially if the one in front of you is other gender.And send sexual based messages gradually.In that sense,the catastrophe is approaching.
