Chat Roulette – Next !
I thought I would write some stuff about chat roulette as it seems to be sweeping the chat world at the moment, and I for 1 have no idea what all the fuss is about lol.
Where did it all start ?
In fact quite a long time ago, Ive seen many similar sites to chat roulette in the past, they all failed miserably, for one reason not many people had web cams at that point in time, but that’s changed now, most people have web cams pre installed on their computer or laptop.
The problem with starting a site like this is you need lots of people to log on, and keep the community active, now chat roulette is popular I dont see it ever having this problem now.
How Chat Roulette works ?
Well basically you go to the chat roulette website, enable your cam, let the site access your website and then click new game, as soon as you do that you are randomly connected to another user, this could be anyone from someone playing with themselves or someone sleeping, if you don’t like the look of them you can click next at any time and move onto another person.
One of my major gripes with chat roulette is you get next-ed a lot, and I mean a lot, the chat roulette lot are a pretty shallow bunch to be honest, which is one of the major downsides to the website, so you might spend an hour on the site, just bouncing from one person to another without even one conversation.
Its Pretty Clever
In fact the setup is pretty clever, as the site is a very simple script and doesn’t use much bandwidth at all. So you have no worries about needing a big server with loads of bandwidth to run the site.
No doubt there will be 100s of clones now all variants on this theme, so it should evolve and change over time
The security issues are tackled pretty simply, there isn’t any at all, a simple message saying you must be over 16 to use the site and that’s your lot, so the site is not safe at all but since when has that put anyone off using chat sites and communities.
No doubt every liberal in the land will be asking for a panic button at the drop of a hat once they realise how easy chat roulette is to get into.
Here is a decent video I managed to find about Chat Roulette, pretty good stuff
