Chatroulette and Omegle
If, like many, you grew up being ordered not to talk to strangers, the latest internet phenomenon presents both an illicit thrill and a deep-rooted discomfort.
The two sensations are key to the buzz around chat forums Chatroulette and Omegle, in which strangers are randomly connected with each other online.
Both developed by teenagers - Chatroulette by 17-year-old Russian Andrey Ternovskiy and Omegle by 18-year-old American Leif K Brook - the main difference between them is that a webcam is required for Chatroulette.
When you log on, if you don't like the person you see (or what they're doing) you hit "next" (or "disconnect" on Omegle) and automatically get a new, equally random connection. You cannot choose the person you want to speak to.
