Public chats can now handle 150 participants (and you thought 100 was cool)
Those of you who worry that your public chat will break under the weight of participants, worry no more. (Or worry less, for a more gradual approach.) It used to be that public chats had a 100-person limit. Chat walls have now been rubberized and can now accommodate 150.

What are public chats good for? Read what they are and how they work. Here are a couple of ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
* create a mini press conference
* use them at events, or around events even when people aren’t in the same geographic location. Rave, sing, moan and whine about Eurovision, the Estonian football squad, etc.
* use them for your sports club or team to promote fixtures and organise transport to and from games
* set up a product user group
