    Pros: Relatively easy to use, newbie friendly, self explanatory

    Pros: None.
    Cons: Far too many to list.

    Summary: I’ve been using PalTalk for several years now with my first account being created pre-9/11.  Why mention 9/11?  Because it was a trigger for a transformation at PalTalk (PT) and one that managed to make the community, such as it is, much, ... read more

    Pros: easy to install
    Cons: co-admins do NOT protect teens on the site.

    Pros: Excellent voice and video communications via webcam and microphone. People usually very friendly.
    Cons: Often too much drama. Seniority counts for squat. Favoritism rules.

    Summary: I have used Paltalk off and on for about five years. It is cool if you are a room admin and cannot be bounced but if you are not an admin you can be bounced just because an admin took something you said the wrong way and do so even if you didn't mean for ... read more

    Cons: The fee involved...

    Summary: I really enjoy paltalks voice, and video features, and the fact that it's monitored by people to keep porn ads, bots, and perverts out of the chat rooms. Things have gotten way out of hand with all of the other available chat programs and web sites. ... read more

    Cons: Choppy audio at times, creation of own room difficult, little control over room disruption

    Summary: When one logs onto Paltalk, one expects a service reliable and fun to use. In ways this is accomplished, in others, it fails. I will attempt to put my thoughts of this service in as concise a manner as possible. To be able to actually talk with ... read more
