Now, we’re not talking about web sites catering to the saucier and more risqué…or downright pornographic stuff, but more like sites such as Stickam, UStream, Live Stream, and Omegle.On these sites, preteens, teens, young adults and older folks turn on their web cams and socialize with fellow cam users.Although users are given anonymous names to use when entering a chat with a stranger, many times the conversation quickly turns to giving out each others’ names and other personal information.
Our chat roulette - an analogue of the Russian zyke having greater functionality for dating.
So right away we have probably answered the question in the title of this post!
Omegle is not okay for kids – unless you are okay with your kids chatting with complete strangers. Omegle has been around since 2008, with video chat added in 2009.
No doubt, this type of site can be a blast and a quick way to make a ton of new friends, but there are differences between them.
Stickam was more dedicated to live, streaming, user-generated chat, video and content, while Omegle follows the path of matching two random strangers from anywhere in the world.
