Should there be a live chatroom/chatbar feature on Hubpages?
Only if we can turn it off or opt out. I find chat really intrusive. I don't even leave Skype on unless I've arranged to talk to someone ahead of time.
No , It is annoying on facebook at times unless I know them , would prefer just to do what we can now on here without chatting as well .
Yes, I think there ought to be one. It would be nice to communicate with you live. It would also be a great help if the hubpages team could jopin in.
If you are talking about actual audio chat then my answer is no because this is a writing community.
If you are talking about a section where people can write comments about anything, like is done on Facebook and Twitter I would say no again.
No matter how many times someone has asked for this over the last six years of HubPages, the idea has never gotten off the ground.
HubPages (admin) feels there's no need to re-invent the wheel when so many chat services exist out there. They tell people they can go chat with other Hub users wherever they want.
Then there's the people who have tried to get HubPages-oriented chats going somewhere. Ever single one has failed/died off quickly due to a total and complete lack of participation.
NO! If there was chat it would be even more distracting than all the other stuff on HubPages that I play with instead of writing hubs.

Wouldn't it be nice if Hubpages had a "Chat" feature?

Wouldn't it be nice, if hubpages had a small chat box, So we could talk to other brilliant hubbers or anybody in here, instead of waiting for email or forum responses. If at all it is a nonsense of an idea, then i'm not aware of it. It would be nice to see this implemented.

How fun would that be. Set up like twitter, only allow 140 characters and such. Is this realistic? Could we behave ourselves?

I was thinking this could be a cool feature, take Facebook for example, with the bar along the bottom, it would be good to see those who you follow (and follow you back) that are online and have the option to chat with them.I know HP is very different from FBK but I just though this may be cool, as...

Please, make a feature that lets us know if someone is online (or not) when we visit the person's profile, or tell me why it is not a good idea.

Can we get the facebook like feature to be added somewhere in our posts? Would give the hub more visibility in my opinion to a larger crowd than just friends and family we share on facebook or twitter. What do you think?
