I used to be hooked on chatting before at the mere age of 14. I was pretty much frequenting IRC's but later left the world when all of the people I become used to left as well.
Anyway talking about chatting, I saw a website that caters to teens and they have a teen chat rooms . Their chat rooms are free and you don't have to register or sign up unlike other IRC clients. All you have to do is just type in your nickname and then click the 'Connect' button they have to enter the teen chat rooms.
Here's the chat link: http://www.teensay.co.uk/chat
They have a few rules and regulations to keep the chatroom safe and secure at the same time. You can always mail the administrators if anyone in the chat room is behaving badly.
Aside from the Chat Room, they also have message boards. Message boards with different topics from site updates to getting to know each other's ASL. You can also get into debates because they have a thread for that or talk about the latest news. Of course talking about relationships wouldn't disappear in every thread. And various hobbies from music to books to movies and shopping they are very well present too. Work and Education wouldn't go amiss because they are included in the package and don't forget gadgets and technology. Teen Say pretty much has it all in one message board.
They also have flash games, teen advices, music, movies and celebrity gossips.
It's an all-in-one online community for teens! Go check it out now!
