From there however, anything goes – certainly a chat participant may decide to give their name, location, age and other personal information.
I tried it a few times by clicking on the link to start chatting with a stranger.
When choosing this feature, an Omegle Facebook app will receive your Facebook “likes” and try to match you with a stranger with similar likes.
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.When you use Omegle you do not identify yourself through the service – chat participants are only identified as “You” and “Stranger”.The first thing I was asked was “asl” – meaning what is my age, sex and location. On the second test, I ended up in a brief chat with a young man, a software developer from India.Well, that is what he said but that’s the thing – who really knows?
Omegle is a website that allows you to chat with a random stranger.
So right away we have probably answered the question in the title of this post!
