Melbourne, Apr 14 (ANI): Want to know new people while maintaining anonymity? Well, Omegle website offers you just that, as it has been designed for fleeting conversations between unidentified strangers.
Two people have already found love via Omegle, which lets users chat with one another anonymously and are identified only as "Strangers".And one doesn't have to register, create a profile, or enter any personal information to get started with the website.
While the site has been launched with about 3700 people using it at any moment, most of the conversations read like a comedy act with no one willing to play the straight man.
But people like 18-year-old Mississippi student called Brittany have found a mate on the website.
Omegle's creator, 18-year-old Leif K-Brooks, said that the news of the romance was welcome.
However, he claimed that he had made the web site in the hope that it would give people a new perspective on life.
"I created Omegle partly just out of technical curiosity, but also to address a need I saw," News.com.au quoted him as saying.
He added: "Most of the time, people associate with each other based on common interests. That's fine, and I completely understand why people would want to have something in common with their friends. However, if it's the only kind of social interaction, people's lives will become a bit stagnant; it's hard to learn from someone who's just like you."
K-Brooks further said that many people had used the website to engage in absurd conversations, thinking that it was a place where insight could be gained.
He said: "People have certainly been doing a lot of that with the site, and while it's not quite my original purpose, I'm happy as long as people are enjoying the site. I enjoyed reading the logs someone posted of asking strangers if they believed in God though. I think it's a very interesting social experiment." (ANI)
