What is Omegle? Talk to strangers! Really?

omegle_logoBelow is the transcript of a conversation I had with a stranger on Omegle. On Omegle you can anonymously chat with people you don’t know.   I did not have to sign up, enter an email address or create an account and there are no age restrictions.  I was just asked to start typing.  I am ‘You’, he is the Stranger. I have copied and pasted the full conversation for your interest. Following my final comment he immediately disconnected!  Nothing more needs to be said!  Talk to your children and ‘Like’ us on Facebook CyberSafeParents to get all our updates.

You’re now chatting with a random stranger. Say hi!,
