When you create an account on Fonochat, you are prompted to complete your profile to make it easier for other Latinos to find you.
Fonochat offers a dozen ways to connect with people of the same or opposite sex including anonymous confessions, individual blogs and videos, direct messaging and photo galleries.
As soon as a caller is connected into the system, he is prompted to record his name and a brief greeting describing himself and what he is looking for.
The phone systems will usually allow users hear a chatline greeting example so the caller can get an idea of what he is expected to say.
As soon as a greeting is played, the caller is prompted to press 1 to connect live with that person, 2 to send her a recorded message or 3 to skip this person and listen to the next person's greeting.
Some systems allow you to block a caller by pressing 8 or report a caller to the moderators by pressing 9 (or some other key depending on the system).
Profanity and sexual references are typically not allowed, the chatline moderator's job is to listen and approve every greeting that is recorded.
