Slack is a more organised chat platform, it allows users to reply in threads and have different "channels" (like topics), have a browse of the different channels and get involved (not all are automatically added).

Slack can be used through the web browser, desktop app, or mobile app. you can set the notifications as you wish so you don't need to be notified of every conversation but for example you can limit it to replies to your comments, or when key words are said (eg "CAD" or "laser" etc).
