You can chat right now. Just click "chat". Rooms can be topic based, site based, or whatever you want as long as they are broadly on-topic (related in some way to the site), and is reasonably behaved.

  • You are right. But for that users need to be online. I am looking for a networking model , through which user can connect to each other on SO. Apr 15 '11 at 9:29

    @Sujay there have been discussions about that, always with the result that the vast majority of users (and, more importantly, the network's owners) are not interested in that kind of functionality. There is x number of existing sites that provide this should two SO users want to connect this way.
