Second Life’s (sl) Chat room s divided into three elements in two windows. On the right is the name of the instigator :
LOCAL is where everyone in the local area chats. Friends and Instant Messages are displayed under local. Instant Messages are either between a person to a person or from a group you have joined.

Here is a picture of the interface. Yes my partner and I are lying naked in bed.
The Chat window bottom left the avatar window various interface HUDS top right is a notification.
Getting the idea?
THE CHAT WINDOW :
lhs the Person or group who are chatting…You click on them to chat to them using the by typing in the “click here to chat bar” The highlighted ones mean there is new chat you have not seen. The local chat which is being displayed is chat that is going on in your local environment. See the notification of who is on line. These are your friends.
Chat in local requires concentration as there maybe numerous threads.
This will help in a chat room >>>>>>….hmmm wait a sec…..
