The problem is the person they are chatting with can pretend to be anyone online.
To stay safe, they should keep their conversations anonymous and on Omegle.
After many unsuccessful chats, I wonder if I was missing something.
I could not understand what kids liked about this site.
Kids can also allow Omegle to use their Facebook likes to find a compatible stranger.
Once paired up, you and the stranger chat until someone chooses to disconnect. All of my chats began with “hi” or “hello” then some form of ASL – Age, Sex, Location.
If kids would not want it shared on You Tube or Tumblr, they should not do it on Omegle.
Understand that human behavior is fundamentally uncontrollable, that the people you encounter on Omegle may not behave appropriately, and that they are solely responsible for their own behavior.
By its own admission, Omegle’s monitoring is not perfect and kids will still see inappropriate images.
Kids may have a great chat then “Stranger” asks for their Kik username or other contact information to continue the conversation.
On Omegle, you are identified as “YOU” and everyone else is “STRANGER”.
Based on this information, Omegle will pick a stranger for you.
It is not uncommon in video chat to see either a body part on display or a group of boys asking girls to flash them.
