We all know there are free, anonymous places to talk.

But when you really want to connect, not just any random online chat room will cut it.

How to use a chat room at Supportiv

1. Type in what’s on your mind.

This part can be overwhelming in most online chats. You might not know how to start, or where exactly to post your questions.

However, if you go to a smart chat room like Supportiv, all you do is hit “Chat Now,” enter your biggest concerns on the homepage, and the rest is set up for you in less than 90 seconds.

Whatever you want to talk about, put it here.

After you type in your thoughts and hit continue, you’ll be asked to enter a username. I picked “Troubled” in this example.

Then, get matched with people who want to talk about the same things.

2. Get a feel for the room.

There might just be one other person there – the moderator. If that’s the case, they can help you work through the situation and decide what to do next.

They’ll help you sort out your own thoughts, find helpful resources, and feel understood.

If there are multiple people in the room, you’ll have even more opportunities to get opinions and suggestions from people in your same boat.

At the top of the online chat, you’ll see a bar with circles. Those are each of the people in the room. Click the circles to see other peoples’ thoughts and why they’re here.

Try to figure out who you relate to, who has a new perspective, or even just sit back and make observations from what they’re talking about. The conversation usually goes in a direction that’s helpful for everyone there.

3. Get what you want.

Let it out, feel understood, or even help others.

Once you’re comfortably in the chat, elaborate on your initial thought – you can give details about your problem, ask the opinions of everyone in the chat room, learn if anyone has experienced something similar.

Ask how other people handle their stress. Or ask for ideas to impress your crush. Ask if anyone has found their soulmate at work. Or just ask if anyone relates to what you’re going through. (They probably do…)

Online chat room + peer support = life changing

This is not your average open internet forum.

Supportiv’s chat rooms are specific to you, putting you with others thinking about similar things. When you type a thought, you’re matched with people who are most likely to get what you’re going through.

These chats combine the anonymity of other platforms, with trained moderators who keep conversations actually helpful and troll-free.

Supportiv has won SXSW®’s Pitch Competition for social and cultural impact, and has generated buzz (OprahEntrepreneurHealth…) for being a novel tool anyone can benefit from.

You’ll find ZERO judgement, and someone who gets it is always here to talk: 24/7.

The best, most authentic conversations come from people who have gone through similar struggles. And the real truth always comes out in an anonymous place.

That’s why we believe anonymous peer support is one of the best ways to get understanding, suggestions, and authentic social connection. Luckily, you can access it on-demand, in an online chat!

The convenience factor (available 24/7) definitely helps.

See for yourself, by clicking Chat Now and following the quick steps. You’ll be in a customized online chat room in less than 2 minutes.

We’ve already helped over 90,000 people find answers to their questions and walk away with one-of-a-kind insights.

We know you’ll get your situation on track, and hope we can help in the process.
