Created by a Russian school boy, Chatroulette connects millions of strangers in random video conversations.The web app itself is pretty bare-bones, with two video panes showing the user & you, a huge pane for text chat and a couple of buttons for controlling the chat.You will never be asked for your name or other contact information, but an advocate may ask for your age and city to find local resources for you.Chat with a peer advocate by clicking on the “Chat Online Now” button at the top of the page. If you can’t or don’t want to talk to an advocate on the phone, we offer the same support via our live chat service on Being in the same domain, they have launched Tinychat Next which works the same way as Chatroulette.The user interface is a bit more refined and you need to have flash installed to even see how the UI looks like.The live chat (IM-style) is not a public chat room.
You can ask a question or share a thought and you will be shown a list of people with similar interests to talk to.
Peer advocates can connect you to resources in your area, provide you with helpful websites, help you create a plan to stay safe or just listen to your concerns.
All conversations with peer advocates via phone, chat or text are free and confidential.
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.
