Houseparty - Group Video Chat is a way for groups of teens to connect via live video.
Two to eight people can be in a chat together at the same time.
Because it's an app, the texts won't show up on your kid's phone's messaging service, and you're not charged for them (beyond standard data rates).
Instagram lets users snap, edit, and share photos and 15-second videos, either publicly or within a private network of followers.
It unites the most popular features of social media sites: sharing, seeing, and commenting on photos.
Using Snapchat to connect, users have 10 seconds to live video-chat with strangers. Omegle is a chat site that puts two strangers together in their choice of a text chat or a video chat.
Being anonymous can be very attractive to teens, and Omegle provides a no-fuss way to make connections.
