looking for the perfect mix of video, audio, and text socializing,
CamFrog might be what you're looking for.
The chat rooms
feature everything from music lessons to sign language to non-English
chatting, and integrating video, audio, and text components are a great
leap forward for chat communities since a Webcam is not a requirement.

not a program that kids should use without supervision.
interface should be familiar to anyone who has used any messaging

for a well-trafficked video chat program that serves a diverse
community, CamFrog is cool place to land.
