Facebook Style chat box won't open

P: 1
Hi:
I'm a novice self taught programmer and I'm trying to write a Facebook Style chat script.

I started with CSS code I found ready to go in the following DEMO:

I added code successfully, so a registered user can click on any other registered user link on the right "List Box" and can start typing and each different chat box loads the correct chat conversation.

But the other user, in another remote computer, can never tell I'm trying to chat because the chat popup doesn't open in his computer.

My question is:

What technology is used so that when I open a chat box in my computer, the same will happen in the correct person's computer that I'm trying to communicate with.

I would really appreciate it if you could briefly explain and point to links that may elaborate in detail how I can implement the solution.

Best Wishes and Happy New Yrear
