**WARNING – Chatroulette.com is basically a vulgar place, but you need to be warned about it because it’s getting a lot of press and users will be in your library trying to connect. What appears on the screen – and in the links in this 4Cast – may not be safe for review in public areas of your library. The words, slang, and pictures have somewhat been censored, but because of the nature of this site, some vulgarity can’t be avoided. All self-published entertainment, especially anonymous postings that are live and not recorded, should be viewed with discretion.
Based on visual chat and IM (but webcams aren’t required), ChatRoulette is a website that pairs users with a random videochat partner. If you like who comes up, stay and talk a while, if not, click “next” and a new partner will appear.
