CompuServe CB Simulator was the very first online chat service developed and released by CompuServe in 1980. Its name was inspired by the CB (Citizen's Band) radios that were popular at the time. Cool fact #1? The first online wedding was held on CompuServe CB in 1983.

CompuServe improved the CB Simulator over the years, and added on features such as multiplayer games, digital pictures, multimedia and conference chats. Cool Fact #2: Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones held the first online multimedia conference using CompuServe CB from London on December 7, 1995.
