LOS ANGELES, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- If there's one truth that ChatRandom's Allen Fox has learned over the last year, it's "don't mess with a good thing."

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It wasn't really that long ago when firing up a laptop and connecting face to face on the screen with someone you knew, must less didn't know, seemed like something out of a sci-fi flick. But today, video chatting is anything but an alien concept.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When Napster founders Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning rolled out Airtime with a celebrity-backed bang and $33+ million in investments last June, the video chat site buzzed with promise. Since then, however, Airtime has steadily lost its sizzle, dropping from an average of nearly 200,000 daily users in July to only 20,000 a day in September, according to third-party tracker AppData.
