Twitter and Facebook Grapple with Age Limits

Chatroulette Not Safe for Kids, Despite New Safety Measures

Cyberbullying Worse Than Parents Know

  1. Log onto your Facebook account, search for Airtime, authorize the app and click to start your webcam. You'll see a list of your Facebook friends along with options to connect with people nearby, friends of friends, and online users with shared interests. For now, the shared-interest option produces the most matches because the app is so new and has few users.
  2. Before you select your connection, you can edit the interests that Airtime pulled from your profile. Check the ticker at the bottom of the window to see what's trending — you can add or delete interests in your list.
  3. Choose a friend to chat with, or select from the three options to expand your social network. Once the person you've selected accepts your video chat request, you both have equal real estate on the screen. Airtime will post a list of the interests you have in common as conversation starters. You can also watch a video together by playing one you've already shared on Facebook or search YouTube — these options appear under your interest list.
