Another Be Web Smart reader did a test and shared the conversation with me: A quick Google search helped me to answer this question.A few clicks and I found text excerpts and videos on You Tube of teens sharing their stories of Omegle encounters. In case you’ve read this far and are still not quite convinced that Omegle is a bad idea, here are a few facts about privacy and how the Omegle service works:1.One was an advertising copy writer from Toulouse, France.The other was a college student from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
When you use Omegle you do not identify yourself through the service – chat participants are only identified as “You” and “Stranger”.
I saw a couple of young women who also quickly dismissed me as a candidate for a video chat.
On a couple of occasions, I saw people who hung around long enough to start a conversation either through the Webcam microphone or by text chat.
I hadn’t until a teenager mentioned it in a comment on another article.
I’ve also had several requests from concerned parents asking for a review.
