(Scroll down for video) People who sit long on the toilet will now be able to meet and speak to others who are on the toilet at the same moment, thanks to a new app called Pooductive.

Two students are behind this new app that lets you chat with local and global strangers in the toilet.

Several years ago, the students attempted to launch Pooductive, but they failed. A Kickstarter campaign for Pooductive was canceled after it received just $200 from three supporters.

They aimed to raise $11,388. Once users download the app, they can create a username and password. The app then has three ground rules, you must agree to no pornography, no offensive material and to be respectful.

The next step is to choose the Local or Global option. If the Local option is selected, the user is asked to establish a proximity using a slider, ranging from 2 miles to 150 miles.

If you select Global, the user can choose to participate in a group chat or chat one on one with anyone in the world.

Pooductive is free and has registered more than 20,000 people in the first 10 days.
