Popular mobile applications for chatting with people nearby are Whisper and Yik Yak, while online sites include Omegle, which includes video chat, and a number of online chat sites.
Omegle allows for adult and moderated chat forums and is Web-based. Yik Yak provides the option of creating a "herd" for a preferred area to view the feed from any location, though it defaults to the device's current location. Whisper, unlike Yik Yak, is an app that allows the user to pair text with photographs. The user can view trending whispers online or whisper with people in a specific location. Many additional forums and chat rooms exist on the Internet, though users should use exercise caution when sharing personal information or photographs.
