  Take part in a special report about chatrooms
Updated 08 October 2003, 17.37

Computer giant Microsoft has said it will shut its chatrooms after fears over child safety.

All MSN Chatrooms in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and most of Asia will be closed from 14 October.

Newsround are planning a special report on chatrooms and are looking for a Press Packer who uses them and might be losing friends because of the shutdown.

If you'd like to report for Newsround, email us using the form below and tell us how you feel about losing chatrooms.
