How to Find Free Local Chat Rooms

By Emilia Lamberto

The internet has started a new trend as far as meeting new people goes. With social networking websites and chat rooms, the Internet has made it so much easier to meet new people with the same interests and hobbies as yourself. Local chat rooms have created an even easier way to meet people in your local area in order to date, make friends, and even to meet up. Free local chat rooms aren't very difficult to find.

Step 1

Visit your local media's websites. These include, but are not limited to, news stations, newspaper websites, local networking websites and even local companies.

Step 2

Skim through the websites in order to see if they offer local chat rooms for people in the area. If they do not, move onto step 3.

Step 3

Search online for "free local chat rooms in (your city)."

Step 4

Visit Friend Finder (see resources) and type in your area code. You will have to sign up with the website in order to use these chat rooms, but you may chat for free while your e-mail is verified. In order to access all features of the site, you must verify your e-mail.

Step 5

Check out Yahoo! (see resources). Visit the chat section and then click "Regional." Expand the regional directory in order to see countries. Choose your country, then state or province, and from there, choose your city and finally, a chat room.

Tips & Warnings

  • Read all of the rules of the website. Often, websites will not allow live links, offensive language, and sometimes even mentioning other networking sites.
  • Never give anyone your personal information such as full name, phone number, address and social security number.
