    MSN shuts down its chatrooms


    One in five children regularly use chatrooms, reports suggest
    Microsoft's internet service MSN is to drastically cut back its chatroom services because of concerns about child safety.
    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.

    "As a responsible leader we feel it necessary to make these changes because online chat services are increasingly being misused," they said.

    Children's charities welcomed the move as "momentous" and said they saw it as a big step towards protecting young web users.

    Abusive contact

    MSN UK's Matt Whittingham told BBC News Online it was not a decision they had taken lightly.

    "We have been concerned about chatrooms for a while and reached a stage where we were no longer prepared to put up with inappropriate communication," he said.

    MSN GLOBAL CHATROOMS
    US: Unmoderated chatrooms will be credit card subscription only and bundled with other products
    Canada, Australia, Japan: 24-hour moderated chatrooms, with some unmoderated behind subscription
    New Zealand and Brazil: 24-hour moderated chatrooms
    UK and Europe: All chatrooms closing
    Middle East, Latin America, Asia: All chatrooms closing


    BBCi ChatGuide
    The only chat service available to MSN users in the UK will be the free instant messaging service, MSN Messenger, which is not so open and gives people more control over who they talk to.

    Chatrooms on MSN's other global sites will either be supervised - or moderated - by an adult 24 hours a day, or will be on a credit card subscription-basis only.

    It means no free, unmoderated chatrooms will exist anymore on any of MSN's global network of sites.

    There has been growing concern among experts that the anonymity of net chat means young people are being targeted by adults pretending to be children.

    This extreme policy seems like an exercise in futility

    "We have seen cases where under-16s have been approached by people pretending to be same age, but who are grown adults trying to solicit young people for abusive contact," Mr Whittingham explained.

    He added that, although most messages in chatrooms were not inappropriate, a "small minority" had spoilt chat for people of all ages.

    People have also been increasingly targeted by spammers posting hundreds of messages and inappropriate web addresses to chatrooms.

    Many have been "mining" rooms for data, finding out users' e-mail addresses to build spam lists.

    Instant control?

    MSN has acknowledged that some chatters will not be happy about the move.

    "We regret responsible users will be affected by this move, but we looked at this very carefully and on balance to safeguard customer interests," said Mr Whittingham.

    CHATROOMS AND CHILDREN

    By only making instant messaging available, chatters will be able to restrict and control who they talk to because they can only chat to people on their "buddy lists".

    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.

    Mr Whittingham said all net services offering chatrooms should continue to look at how they can safeguard everyone on the internet, ensuring young people and parents stick to common sense advice.

    This means never giving out personal information online, and never arranging to see someone they have met online in the real world.

    Estás a confundir as coisas.

    No messenger vais poder continuar a ter avisos do mail (senão lá se ia o investimento no passport, etc, etc) e podes continuar a ter chats com amigos, quer individualmente quer em conjunto.

    Para mim, isto é uma decisão baseada nos custos. O acesso às salas passa a ser pago, ah e claro identificado. Aproveitam a boleia da pedofiliia e toca de arranjar receitas.

    BS.

    Tafinho, já somos 2. Ouvi esta notícia na TSF às 8 da manhã dada da forma como se o mundo acabasse ali... Inclusive o tronco que fez a noticia escreveu que "os gloriosos dias da internet estavam no fim com o desaparecimento destas salas".

    Obviamente que mudei para a Marginal de seguida. :)

    Desculpem lá , mas voçês apoiam a Pedófilia e a prostituição???

    Há mais prostituição e pedofilia no parque Eduardo VII que em todos os chats e IRC's juntos do mundo.

    Aquilo é apenas uma desculpa para a Micro$oft poder fechar o protocolo MSN aos clientes que não são da microsoft, como o Gaim , o Trilian e o Miranda.

    Abram os olhos.

    Eu estava num autocarro quando ouvi alguns trechos da nóticia e claro fiquei curioso de modo que deixei o rádio ligado no escritório para ouvir as notícias. Quando finalmente ouvi a notícia fiquei irritado com a falta de bom senso e conhecimento dos jornalistas. Porque quem não está minimamente informado sobre a internet podia ter ficado realmente a pensar que se tinha acabado com os chats já que para muita gente a Microsoft encerrar as salas de chat do MSN podia ser confundido com o irc.

    O mais ridiculo é terem dado o destaque que deram quando este serviço nunca existiu em Português Europeu apenas existia através do MSN Brasileiro :-D :-D
