    Why can't we have a chat box like we have in Social Networking Sites.
    We can chat directly with available persons in online.

    Opinions are appreciated...

    Yes, technically we can have one. But the main difference between a forum and a social network site is that content is searchable. The benefit of posting in threads is that historical discussions are preserved where someone searching for similar problems is able to find a solution from previous discussions. Moreveor, it provides time for people to maybe look into the issue and reply.

    Chat box is fine for forums which tend to discuss general topics like entertainment, movies etc, but for technical topics like oracle or programming etc. this is the preferred medium.

    I know that I have chat enabled on my two email addresses (yahoo and msn/hotmail) and on AOL so I am available should someone wish to chat with me. These chat oiptions are clearly listed in my profile for all to use.
