About #TheCabin

#TheCabin is a global chatroom started in 1995.

Remember the early days of the internet when you used to visit chat rooms and be thrown into conversations with strangers from all over the world? That’s kind of what #TheCabin is like, except it’s still happening now.

#TheCabin (pronounced The Cabin, not hashtag The Cabin) started in 1995 and has had the opportunity to have people from all over the world become friends through it. And while #TheCabin isn’t a dating site, multiple marriages have even taken place after people met there.

If you could use some new friends, just want to talk to somebody, or want to try something different then #TheCabin is a pretty great place to do that. We have our own holidays and in the past have run our own podcast and radio station. It’s a vibrant community we’d love you to be a part of.

As the internet has gotten more complex, user hostile and corporate focused it’s a breath of fresh air to have a place where your information isn’t being sold, where ads aren’t anywhere to be found, and where you can be as anonymous as you want to be. No real name policy, and your age or what you look like doesn’t matter. You don’t even have to give up your email or create an account. You just join and say hi.


Everyone is so used to social networks needing to know everything about you, but it doesn’t have to be that way. #TheCabin requires no information. This includes name, email address, photo or location.

Data Collection and Privacy

While #TheCabin can be accessed through the web, it’s inherently not a web site. You can read more about the technology and platform. That means there’s no cookies or marketing companies following you around. And given that we don’t have your email address we won’t sign you up for newsletters or sell it for advertising purposes. We do count the number of people who join, and make guesses where you might be coming from just for our own curiosity and to pins on the web site map, however.

Real people, real friends.

You may be used to collecting people that you never actually talk to on social networks. On #TheCabin these are real people that are instant friends when you join, not just a list of names. Drop by today, say hello, and become a part of something special.
