Farsi speakers can chat with other Farsi speakers on sites such as iranonline.com, farsi-chat.com, and 1chatroom.ir/farsi-chat. Each site offers free access to their services. Some sites also deliver cultural information, historical background on the language, and the option to chat with text or voice.
Most sites include general rules concerning etiquette, as well as suggestions on chatting in a public forum. Some sites, such as 1chatroom.ir/farsi-chat, don't require login information, while other sites, such as farsi-chat.com, let you use your Facebook account if you don't want to create another password. The oldest operating Farsi chat site, iranonline.com, lets you choose from 10 different chat rooms that are classified by country and special interest.
If you haven't learned to read or write Arabic script, some members do chat in Pinglish, which is Farsi written with English characters; however, all three sites predominantly use Arabic lettering.
