Anyway, we have here our alternative to sites like Omegle, and you might wonder why we bothered, since obviously there are already other places that exist that provide a similar service, and blah blah blah. It makes it easier for both people in the conversation, and that's what we call mutually beneficial!
This saves the hassle of having to go to some image uploader, upload the picture there, and then paste the link in the chat box, and then having to wait for the other person to go to it.
In the 21st century, an online service has the potential to garner hundreds of thousands of hits if it is social networking enabled. Now after a decade of connecting with real world friends online, people suddenly have the desire to befriend strangers.
Though not the first chat service to pair up random strangers, Chatroulette did add video zing to the otherwise bland random text chats.
Being in the same domain, they have launched Tinychat Next which works the same way as Chatroulette.
The user interface is a bit more refined and you need to have flash installed to even see how the UI looks like.
Created by a Russian school boy, Chatroulette connects millions of strangers in random video conversations.
The web app itself is pretty bare-bones, with two video panes showing the user & you, a huge pane for text chat and a couple of buttons for controlling the chat.
For example, in the case of Chatroulette the only contact address provided is [email protected], which could well be appropriate considering the usefulness of the entire idea.
anybodyoutthere is a random chat service with an awesome UI and concept.
