Having the Conversation


Start here:

Who do you usually chat with? How do you find people to chat with?

How do you feel about chatting with people you don’t know in real life?

What circumstances would feel okay and what circumstances would feel not okay?



Do you ever chat with someone you haven’t met before? (in real life)

How do you find them? How do they find you?

What are some cool things about being able to communicate with people you don’t know in real life? What are some negative things?

Has anything weird or scary ever happened to you?


Keep Talking:  

What are some chat/instant messaging services that you wouldn’t use?


What are some boundaries you have in place for chatting/instant messaging?

Are there some things you won’t talk about?

Are you concerned for your privacy?

Do you save chats or erase them?
