I wrote back: Don’t be afraid, everything will be okay. I agree with Tech Rice’s Sunny Ye that 2012 should be Weixin’s year — and maybe not just in China…Not only are there lots of people who could practice Chinese by using it, but there’s nothing like it in the mainstream US app space and I, for one, am trying to get my colleagues and friends to adopt it as well.
The walkie-talkie like voice-messaging makes voice calls much more convenient and fun for those of us who don’t love talking on the phone in realtime.
Colarulo wanted to get the word out about a dangerous website: Omegle Talk to strangers!
The 12-year-old Radnor boy whose experience prompted the investigation told police the suspect, a New York man in his 20s, allegedly coaxed the child to send nude pictures of himself, said Colarulo.
”If they do track down the person who spoke to the Radnor 12-year-old, that suspect faces “a whole host of charges, mostly felonies,” said Colarulo.
Radnor is working with the Delaware County Criminal Investigative Division Internet Crime Unit, said Schrieber.
“We can’t keep our head in the sand and not do anything.”Schrieber said, “We do the best we can to try to educate parents. They don’t understand the ramifications.”Operators of the website Omegle did not respond to a request for comment by press time.
I LOVE this: If you feel like chatting via text or voice with random strangers in mainland China, and you live anywhere in the world, download the free Tencent Weixin app for your i Phone or Android phone.
