Air time app

Once "bored" billionaire introduced Airtime-an app for all like Chatroulette.

"Bored” billionaire Sean Parker, the First Investor and Founding President of Facebook, has introduced a new service today that allows users to chat by video and share files with friends and strangers and also have a chance to meet with the stars.

During a star-studded event in New York that included rapper Snoop Dog, actor Jim Carrey, comedian Jimmy Fallon and singer Alicia Keys, Parker showed off “Airtime”, a video site connected to the Facebook platform that includes a “next” button to find a random chat partner,similar to the once-hot online video service “Chatroulette”.

Though similar to “Chatroulette”, “Airtime” features Facebook connectivity and other additions such as the ability to watch YouTube videos together and also has a greater chance to run into celebrities.

Ronen was excited when the Facebook founder meet with this app, but by the looks of things in the screenshot above, Zuckerberg was not quite as thrilled. “After like 30 seconds he “NEXT”ed me,” Ronen told.

“Facebook isn’t helping you make new connections, Facebook doesn’t develop new relationships, Facebook is just trying to be the most accurate model of your social graph,” Parker said at the event.

“There’s a part of me that feels somewhat bored by all of this. There’s no room for serendipity,” he added.
