Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning, two of the men behind music service Napster, revealed their latest creation on Tuesday. It's called Airtime. ...The whole setup is a lot like Chatroulette, a site which randomly paired strangers up for video chats. No coincidence here, since both Parker and Fanning briefly worked with Andrey Ternovskiy, that platform's 17-year-old Russian founder, before it became old news.
As we pointed out when we first covered Airtime, the service works a lot like Chatroulette — a site which randomly paired strangers up for video chats. The trouble with Chatroulette, of course, was that many users — ahem — exposed themselves on camera.
Any snapshots which are deemed to be showing potentially inappropriate behavior — which according to the Airtime terms of service includes nudity, violence, animal cruelty, drug use and more — are flagged and sent to the Airtime's Tier 1 safety team.
