    6rounds was developed by a company based in Isreal. The logo is see you around. They have partnered with the very well known company, google wave. It was made so you can talk with people on the comuter and be able to play games with them. You are also able to do things like drop a kiss or a bomb, and when you do one of those actions, it shows up on the other person's screen.

    • 6Rounds is a live meeting point
    • One does not need a webcam, you can text chat or use microphones to talk
    • "Rounds" are 1 on1 chats lasting 10 minutes, you are able to join any rounds available
    • The "street" is the first thing you see in the Lobby. You walk around to see who is online. If you see someone you would like to know invite them to a round.

    - You can import information to 6rounds from Facebook and twitter.

    - As Elizabeth said, you can navigate through the lobby to find people, but you can also set your settings so that nobody can see you in the lobby but your friends.

    - People can choose different games to play in a round, and you can also talk to the "manager" of 6Rounds if there are any problems or questions

    I e-mailed the community manager Natasha. I asked her some questions since this is a new site. She is very helpful about answering the questions that I had. If you ever need any help she said she is more than willing to answer your questions. Please don't be afraid to ask her questions. Thank you

    How does 6rounds apply to elementary schools?
    To be honest, at this point in time the website is only open for users aged 16 and above. Therefore, it does not apply to elementary school students, only to the alumni, teachers and staff of these schools.
    Why was this website created?
    6rounds was created because the founders realized their was a lapse in the market's offerings. There were instant messaging options such as msn and aol, and there was video chats, such as skype, there was even gaming platforms where users could play games against each other, but nothing seemed to offer the whole package and combine real-time communication, video chat and many interactive activities all at the same time. From this realization, the founders sought out to create a live meeting point that would incorporate many features together.
    Why is this website benefitial?
    6rounds.com is not meant to be a destination and therefore is not in competition with social networks such as myspace or facebook, in fact it's beneficial because it was built to be a cross platform environment allowing users from all different social networks to communicate and interact with one another on one fun, real and exciting platform.
    Please let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help.
    Best Regards,
    ~Natasha

    I found this website to be very useful for information. http://blog.6rounds.com/category/media-coverage/

    There was so conflicting websites about when 6rounds was created. This is what Natasha sent me.

    "started the developments in Febuary, but the site was launched until July 2nd (in private beta) and is now in beta. We hope to move out of beta in the first quarter of 2010."

    I just wanted to clear that up.
