Being able to stay connected – that has become one of the basic necessities of man today. At this age it is of utmost importance that we should maintain communication with each other as much as possible. That is why we go to places to see our friends, colleagues and loved ones. We send them, letters, greeting cards and the like; this has become part of our daily lives.
It is unavoidable, that through these simple yet repetitive actions, our environment has taken its toll. Mountains have become bald, void of trees and life due to the increasing demand on paper; some of which are used on those letters. The air has become almost toxic, due to non-stop carbon emissions by the very cars that we use to meet people. It may not be one of the main causes, but being able to stay connected – is definitely one of the reasons that nature is slowly perishing.
Though I myself don’t know how to prevent this, I have a rather good idea of at least, lessening the damage. The use of a live chat system can fill the gap of having to visit someone just to say hello or to send them letters that can easily be sent through chat.
A live chat system is a feature – commonly used in social networking sites such as Facebook – that lets you chat with other people in real time. That alone can beat the purpose of you having to go to another city to talk with them face to face. Using this, you can easily communicate with people, wherever they may be, even if they’re on the other side of the globe. It’s the same as speaking with someone on the phone; the only difference is that you’re typing your messages instead of speaking it to them.
There are different kinds of live chat systems. The most common are called chat widgets. These widgets can be easily installed and can be embedded into a website.
These widgets, along with its excellent way of communicating with one another, have different features that differs them from one another. One feature called social media integration capacity makes use of the sheer number of Facebook and Twitter’s users, which can be quite useful if you wish more web traffic for your very own website. It gives online readers access to the chat room by simply logging in their Facebook or Twitter account. This is one of the upbringing features of the chat widget developed by Chatwing.
These chat widgets are, in my own honest opinion, are pretty beneficial to use since not only won’t they make you drive ten miles to chat with a friend, it is also very useful in traffic-garnering if you embed it in your own website or blogspot. It would even be better if your chat widget is Android or Apple IOS compatible since it will enable you to chat with people using your mobile phones. But, even though I’m saying that you need not go out to communicate with people, it’s not like I’m saying you can’t go out either.
Through different kinds of communicating with other people through mobile phones and such, life has become much easier and more convenient. And with the addition of live chat I’d say, that at the very least, we made a difference, in lessening the strain caused by our actions, to Mother Nature.
