With the way the internet has become even just message boards seem to take too long for me. I want information immediately and find that chat rooms offer me that opportunity. Be it for a product, information on how to do something I can't figure out with my PC, or even just hearing some sports news in a live chat with an insider. Sometimes I can't wait for an e-mail back when there is probably someone in a chat that has an answer for me right away. In this way chat rooms have become a regular source of information for me.
