The founder and CEO of Facebook surprised at least one user by making a cameo on Airtime, which allows people to communicate live with their Facebook friends. The service also lets users connect with strangers through its “Talk To Someone” feature, pairing them with individuals who, according to their Facebook profile information, share similar interests.
Can you imagine trying the chat-a-stranger option, only to share screens with Zuckerberg himself? Well this happened for New York blogger Ronen V who joked he had just enough time to thank Zuck for making Facebook.
Airtime was officially released June 5, and created by Napster founders Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning. The hope of this new app is to “create shared experiences with people you know, and people you want to know.” This browser-based software also allows users to send content while video-chatting, so sharing YouTube videos or websites with friends on Facebook can now take place in real-time.
Have you tried Airtime yet? What do you think?
