Omegle.com Lets You Anonymously Mess With Complete Strangers
What are you to do if you like social networking and interacting with people digitally, but don't actually like your friends? Or don't even want to know your conversation partner's identity?
Well, 18-year-old Leif K-Brooks decided he was tired of talking to the people he knew in Brattleboro, Vermont, so he created Omegle. The site lets you anonymously chat with a complete stranger one-on-one. You simply visit Omegle.com, click 'Start a chat' and you're up and running with an anonymous chat partner.
It's fun, awkward, and oddly thrilling. It's sort of a throwback to the early days of AOL and chat rooms, except for the fact that it's one-on-one (so you don't have to filter out 30 other concurrent conversations).
There is no filtering, though, and, since it's anonymous, we're sure that more than a few people are having fun by being completely inappropriate. So, if you're at work, you might want to wait until you get home to check this one out. [Via: Gawker]
