www.omegle.com is a wonderful website that i came across recently. it did not have much zing-bang of other networking site. and that is what makes it refreshingly different. no concept of login or an acct. in fact the beauty lies in anonymity. as soon as click on chat u will be randomly connected to a stranger. u talk about general issues and things u like to do or dont.
but generally don't discuss ur name et al.
in fact the site mentions that 'asl' is a taboo.
u are also free to pretend to be somebody else and pose and chat like him.
its great fun. and keep posting me on ur exploits.
