The notable American entrepreneur Sean Parker and co-founder of the popular file sharing company Napster has teamed up with his Napster co-founder Shawn Fanning to create a new website named –‘Airtime.com’
What Is Airtime?
To get into the realtime chat with your facebook friends in a much simpler way, here comes a live platform known as ‘Airtime’. Based on mutual facebook interests one can also get connected with other facebook users apart from chatting with your friends. Airtime uses the information which one publishes on facebook & it is built around facebook.
Airtime is more equipped version of Chatrolette. Chatroulette is a much more similar service to Airtime launched in 2009 by which one can video chat with random strangers around the world. Complaints from users regarding the objectionable content being published by other users resulted in the failure of this website.
What Personal Information is Shared?
Airtime shows ones name and location only while chatting with a facebook friend but while chatting with a complete stranger it does not displays yours or the strangers name and location. Airtime only displays anything personal if either you or the stranger decides to do so.
Who can Use Airtime?
Facebook Account is all what is needed for Airtime. Facebook makes it more secure coz one will have actual & justified people to chat instead of strangers with unlawful interests. One is eligible to use Airtime if he haves an active facebook account and a flash player installed in the system ( & a Web Camera).
Is Airtime Safe to Use?
A lot of safety features has been built for this website by Airtime in which it spent an entire year. Airtime hired contractors who reviews screen shots from the abusive conversations reported. Visual Recognition Software, capable of spotting an unusual activity on the website & an built-in algorithm measures users time that one spends in talking with other users and then it decides if it should introduce that user to someone or not. Airtime is safer to use coz of this safety measures.
This could be considered as the next big thing by Sean & Shawn, which might reform the way one connect to strangers. “Airtime is also going to be included on iOs and Android Applications”, said by ‘Sean & Shawn’.
