Online conversations with native speakers

What current systems are there for meeting and chatting (video/audio/text) with native speakers of a language?

How can we best arrange good matches for language partners to practise?

could a system based on interests and topics work?

-something like's method of putting together data of music plays, favourite artists and related artists to work out the similarity of users' tastes?

or, perhaps you could use a system where each user lists interests, background, and a 'would like to learn more about' section?
