    "Badoo is an excellent app for meeting and chatting with strangers.  But i think there are just too many fake and inactive accounts. Hopefully they will permanently delete those so people including me will have a better expeirnce. "

    "Back in the day I used Chatroulette and now I am using Azar which most people say is trying to resurrect the old-school live chat experience for the younger generation eh. In fact this one is so different from Chatroulette becauyyse it allows you to add people on your contacts. What i also love is that there is a real time voice translation when you are chatting with people from different countries. How cool is that right?"

    "If you want a place where you can meet new people online from around the world then this is your top choice. Not only that if you also want to try to find someone to date then maybe this might be one of your options. But all in all i love that people here can really bring up some interesting conversations. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that anonymous chatting with strangers has been an emerging trend among teenagers nowadays? The advent of technology, internet, and the easy access to different websites has surely paved the way for the dramatic change in social media consumption. According to the statistics presented by GuardChild, 96% percent of teenagers regularly spend an ample amount of time on social networking applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and blog sites, especially in the Northern part of America. They eat Facebook for breakfast, so to speak. However, nowadays, teenagers are now veering towards anonymous chatting with strangers simply because they feel incredibly free from pressure and most especially, judgment. 

Inasmuch as it offers a sense of excitement and thrill, anonymous chatting is a double-edged sword. On one hand, anonymity allows you to virtually experience the no-holds-barred conversation with someone—you can be who you really are or who you want to be—and it lets you broaden your world and network. Eventually, a simple chat can blossom into something much deeper—friendship, dates, or even business partners! After all, social media applications are now becoming business platforms. On the other hand, the danger lies on the inappropriate content a chat could contain---sexual advances from more than 500,000 predators, identity theft, and cyberbullying—that could lead to possible psychological traumas to all users. So to everyone, especially to the tweens and teens out there, always be cautious in giving out personal details—or just don’t.

    "I was interested in finding an Android app to chat with strangers anonymously. Unfortunately, Kiwi does not accomplish this task. The first issue with this app is the conversations are not encrypted. The second problem is that the app requires you to link your Facebook account in order to use Kiwi, which completely eliminates the chance you can use this service anonymously."

    "Chatting with strangers through anonymity has always been a double-edged sword. It allows people to be open and honest but at the same time, it draws away from the possibility of forming lasting real relations. Hiyo solves this by giving people the flexibility of asking for advice from strangers with anonymity or as themselves. People can share advice and help solve each other's personal worries in real-time. Only through private conversations do identifies of individuals are released. I have had so many meaningful conversations on Hiyo and it's great to be able to vent out any worries I may have and know that someone will be there is listen, advise and care about it."

    "I thought this app had great promise, but after using it for a while it was filled with continuous errors. Plus the more I thought about it the stranger it seemed. The idea of talking with complete strangers from around the world just sounds like a major safety hazard. Also, there is no option for log out or delete my account."
