In a chat room you can sit and listen to the conversation. You can 'come to the mic' and speak to the room. You can stream your web cam to the room. And you can text chat with everyone in the room.
But what if you want to chat or interact with an individual that you have met in a group?
If you want to chat or interact with an individual in a more private setting, you can right click on their name. When you do a menu appears with the following choices.

Only the person that you picked can see the message.
