The most important thing to remember about chat rooms is that it’s up to you how much or how little you talk about, how long you talk for and what you say.
While most high quality websites have checks in place to make sure there are no fake users, it’s important no matter who you’re speaking to or how much you feel you trust them never to share personal information in a chat room, for example your bank details or full address.

THIS IS A FEATURE ABOUT CHAT ROOMS IN GENERAL – PLEASE VISIT OUR CHAT ROOM HERE TO CONNECT WITH FELLOW SILVERSURFERS Mother of three grown-up daughters I am the ultimate multi-tasker and am passionate about my role as Silversurfers Website Editor and Social Media Manager. I am looking to chat with senior citizens with lively minds who like serious subjects and have opinions (not necessarily the same as mine) on a wide range of topics, including Christianity and getting older. I've only just found this site and have no idea what I'm doing either - so that makes at least two of us.
Always on the lookout for all things that will interest and entertain our community. I lost my wife last year and have just gone onto the site out of curiosity today.
Similarly, the chat rooms on Buzz50 make it easy to find chats and discussion forums with other over 50s that interest you.
