MSN is closing all its chatrooms in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and most of Asia from 14 October, and changing the way others are operated globally.Many retired men and women are attracted to senior chat rooms as a way to be social and interact with other seniors online.As the Internet becomes integrated into daily life, these chat rooms can provide a vital link to meeting people and continuing to keep the mind active. Many seniors see it as a time to do the fun activities that have been on their minds for years.People need to ask permission to be a "buddy" and they need to know the user's e-mail address to make a request, which means most children only have "buddies" who they know outside the internet.They will also continue to make MSN Messenger free to users.
