Back in the 1990s there was a service called CUCME (as in "see you see me") that let you strike up a video chat with strangers.I remember trying it when I got my first PC video camera and encountering a topless female on one of my first forays.
In my case, mostly what I saw were the heads of young men and as soon as they saw me, they apparently clicked Next because they were gone in a second.
Our free roam facility provides a last chance for the "furkids" whose lives would otherwise come to a premature end.
Our inspiration, Caroline, was one such creature who found sanctuary with compassion.
Jeff Dess, an Atlanta-based prevention specialist with Cobb County Schools and author of Turn Up The Music: Prevention Strategies To Help Parents Through The Rap, Rock, Pop And Metal Years, has seen cases of elementary and middle school kids using Chatroulette and similar video chat rooms.
He warns parents that sites like these are inappropriate for children because "you don't know who you're chatting with and there is no supervision." Unlike most social-networking sites, there is no requirement to sign in and there are no profiles. Dess said that a conversation is more effective than a technological solution.
