You should have a email id provided by your University or college to register and take part in a conversation.
The site also supports Facebook Connect, however, the email id with which you have registered in Facebook should be id. Apart from being an extremely hilarious idea, I noted a few funny things in these web apps.
It could connect great minds leading to awesome innovations (highly unlikely) or at the very least it could help students to hook up across campuses.
None of the sites are moderated and there have been hundreds of blog posts complaining about rampant, unsolicited nudity & perversion in these random chat sites.
If you are a parent with underage kids, we strongly advice you to add these sites to the parental control filters.
So you can pick and choose the person to have a random chat with.
In addition, you can play real time games, listen to music and watch Youtube videos while on the site.
Omegle has been around for a while connecting random strangers in text chats.
