A. IRC and web chat
IRC (Internet relay chat) is a system that allows Internet users to meet in channels
(or chat rooms) in order to have live conversations on the topic of the chosen channel.
To participate you need to install a chat client, a special type of software, on your
computer to connect to the chat server, the computer where the meeting takes place.
Once you have logged into an IRC server or a web chat site, you have to choose a
username or nickname that will identify you during the chat.
After choosing the channel, you can read the conversation, type and send messages. You
Can post messages to everyone in the channel or have private conversation with someone.
Channels are run by channel operators, ‘chanops’ or just ‘ops’ who control the content
and people who join and the people who join and may ban users or ask them to leave the room.
B. Instant messaging
IM (instant messaging) programs allow Internet users to communicate in one-to-one conversations; they are a chat room for just two people.
With programs such as ICQ (I seek you) and MSN messenger you can maintain a list of people, called a buddy list or contact list.
The program opens up a small window where the people engaged in the conversation type their messages.

The latest IM programs also incorporate telephone, video and file-sharing facilities and are becoming an alternative to traditional video conferencing programs.
C. Video and voice calls
Video conferencing (video call) systems allow a live connection between two or more participants in separate location between two or more participants in separate location using the Internet to exchange audio and video data. The users need a computer with broadband access, a webcam, a microphone and speakers. Some popular programs are CU-See Me and Windows Netmeeting.
The Net can also be used for online telephone conversations, either computers-to-computer or computer-to-phone, which require special software (e.g. Net2Phone) or an applet, a Java application that runs from the browser when you access a web page, and also a microphone, sound card and speakers.
This type of communication users VolP (Voice over Internet Protocol) , which turns analogue audio signals , like the ones on the telephone, into digital data that can be sent via the internet.
D. Virtual worlds
Internet users can also communicate in theree-dimensional environments.
Internet of nicknames, people choose Avatars or 3D characters in order to interact with other people.
A popular language used to create interactive simulations within the Net is VRML (Virtual Reality Modelling Language).
