Cool Websites: Omegle -- the 'Talk to Strangers' Chat Site [★]Sunday, December 18, 2011
Have you ever been so bored that you just wanted to talk to someone over the internet? There are so many chat sites online but one of the easiest and most entertaining site that I've discovered is Omegle.
|Sometimes you don't really have to follow what your mom tells you. ;)|
It's actually a very simply-built site that pairs you up with another stranger for you to chat with.
I think the factors that made this chat site appealing are --
- There is no registration required.
- The instructions are very easy to follow.
- It let's you chat with another person INSTANTLY.
- Chatting is completely anonymous
|What a nice conversation. :O|
Another cool feature of Omegle is the 'Spy Mode', wherein you can pose a question and watch as two strangers discuss your post. However, you can't join their conversation. I find it entertaining because it let's me know how different people respond to my questions.
Of course, you are can ask anything under the sun. :D
|Uh I think that's not the TVXQ I know. :o|
Some of their responses really made me crack out. :))
There is also a video version of the chat, which let's you chat with video. But... I don't recommend to use it. :O
I actually want to learn the algorithm behind the site. I think the chat algo is very simple (I actually did one in class). What I'm curious about is the handling of the 'random pairing'
between strangers because it actually takes just seconds given the thousands of connections available to be paired with. I really think it's just a simple algorithm. Actually the site was built by just an 18-year-old guy, and I think he's a genius. :)
Try visiting the site! Beware, it can be very addicting. ;p
