Omegle – grab a random chat with someone you don’t know

Omegle

Omegle is a new and rather strange online chat service which automatically hooks you up with a random stranger when you log in. In one sense this is the ultimate Web 2.0 pop, sharing your time with the world, on the other hand it can be very disconcerting to log on and discover some stranger at the other end asking you where you’re from. Maybe it’s a personality thang? Anyhoo, it’s an interesting experiment, and just a tiny weeny bit creepy. Not sinister you understand…just creepy.

 Omegle is a brand-new service for meeting new friends. When you use Omegle, we pick another user at random and let you have a one-on-one chat with each other. Chats are completely anonymous, although there is nothing to stop you from revealing personal details if you would like.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?
