About eight days ago we noticed that our year-old article about the Talking Angela hoax had suddenly become very, very popular indeed. Google Trends shows that it was happening worldwide; searches for ‘Talking Angela’ have almost literally gone off the chart. I decided to take a look at the Talking Angela app, and to read the comments on our site and the Google Play Store to see if there was anything that might explain this tsunami of attention.
Here are four things I suspect helped the hoax spread.
The Talking Angela app has a Child mode that can be switched on and off.
The statement sent by Out Fit7 to Naked Security describes Child mode as follows: ...users are given the option to play the Talking Angela app in child mode, a function specifically designed to safeguard young players.
The character herself is a talking, animated cat in the Disney mould who is very clearly designed to appeal to young children.
There is no explicit Adult mode so just who this cartoon cat is aimed at when it’s not in Child mode is unclear.
Speed is of the essence, it seems, and in an effort to move as quickly as possible many have simply had to leave punctuation at home to save weight.

If users ignore Negobot, then the program will try to recapture their attention by eventually offering sexual favors in exchange for attention.This could be considered entrapment or even harassment, and any potential criminal information gathered as a result of such "offers" is unlikely to hold up in court, John Carr, a specialist in online child safety, told the BBC.But what makes Negobot unique — aside from its crime-fighting mission — is its use of game theory to trap potential pedophiles.That means, essentially, that Negobot treats conversations as a game, with the objective of gathering as much potential evidence of pedophilic tendencies as possible.
Participants chatting with Negobot can stay in this state, as long as they don't bring up sexual or otherwise disturbing content.
