Tick Talk...

AdvantagesA great, community spirit. Fun and easy to use.

DisadvantagesEats up precious sleeping-hours...

"O.K, so I’m a bachelor. Hey, life in a bachelor pad can be very enjoyable, but there are times (especially in the dead of winter, stuck out on this windswept raft of land I call home) where cabin fever kicks in and you just want to talk to someone. So you call your friends. And where are they? They’ve all got timeshares in Guatemala or Alicante or Penrith or something. So what do you do? You sign up with Paltalk, that’s what. Now, ..."

Its all talk

AdvantagesFree, easy to use, informs you when your pals are on line

DisadvantagesCan conflict with firewalls or antivirus though not insurmopuntable

"Another excellent program which I was surprised to see had only one other opinion written about it. So I have decided that I should speak out in favour of this excellent internet chat site.

A totally new experience for me

AdvantagesFree, interesting categories, people polite

Disadvantageschildren could enter one of the adult rooms

"I have just used Paltalk for the first time and I was amazed at the quality of the chat in the new members rooms. Paltalk is a free chat area with a difference. Members can chat by text, live via microphone or can video conference. Also available is private message 1 to 1 chat. After listening to the live chat going on in new members room I decided to navigate a few of the other rooms. Most rooms were really good and the users welcomed me on arrival. ..." Read review

Chat until the cows come home

AdvantagesGreat way to stay in touch and make new friends

DisadvantagesThe popup banners

"PalTalk is a free messenger which is quickly and easily downloaded. You register with a username and password. Once registered, you can join chatrooms about more or less any topic imagineable! You can add people to your friends list, like with most messengers. This is quite good, as you can use text, voice chat and video conference. The latter one being of little use to me as I have no webcam! You can also create your own chat room if you wish. ..." Read review

paltalk and hear

Advantagescheap, hear all accents and not just email people


"Paltalk is absolutely great. If you havent tried it I definately recommend you to give it a try. You will need a mike if you want to take part and do some talking. There is nothing to stop you just going into a room though and typing what you wish to say instead of talking. Paltalk can be downloaded in just a couple of minutes. You then choose a name by which you want to be known. When you feel like it choose a room you want to enter. Now these ..." Read review
