The Chat of Tucumanos, a space that made history

It was the most popular instant messaging space in Tucumán. And connected almost the whole province: the unforgettable Chat of Tucumanos.


Today the way of interacting on the Internet revolves around Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and other apps like Mr. Tinder. Clearly, these apps are at their peak of fame and development, but few seem to remember their predecessors. Messenger and, specifically in Tucumán, the chat channel of Tucumanos.

Messenger is probably the origin of what we now know as social networks, facilitating the possibility of communicating with anyone in the world without moving from home. But Tucumán had an equally ambitious space for a large audience in a small space. It was a general instant messaging channel called Tucuman Chat.

The goal of this channel was not to connect people from all over the world, but to connect some Tucumans with others. It became a very popular chat because it concentrated thousands of people in one place.

The chat was very basic, I didn't have colors, images, could not send files, we could not even use a profile picture. It was very limited, but the possibilities of contact with new people were much bigger than Messenger.

Tucumanos Chat was regulated by other users so that there were no insults or uncontrolled discussions. This virtual dialog space allowed for general or private interaction between users. Some participants could register their nicks or usernames, and eventually became referents of the chat room.

There were two ways to enter the chat: using a page called Tucumanos or using a software called MiRC. The program allowed you to create and search different chat channels. The installation was somewhat complex, but once configured to use it was easy.

Tucumán's most popular chat

It was one of the first virtual spaces that brought together thousands of people with different interests. People looking for friends, others looking for couples , and there were also salespeople. The main feature of this chat was that one could contact thousands of people anonymously. Tucumanos Chat was one of the best stages of instant messaging alongside Messenger.
