Anonymous video chats, better known as
roulettes, appeared at the beginning of the XXI century and have already won
the recognition of millions of users. Some visit sites to find friends, others
search for a life partner, while others visit sites like Chatroulette while
surfing the Web. Why are roulette chats really needed and what is the use of them?
Let’s try to figure it out.
The purpose of chat-roulettes
Chats were invented as tools for dating,
combining the availability of communication and the ability to look for
like-minded people. When Omegle and Chatroulette appeared, no one could have
expected such a rapid development of the sites. However, today every day tens
of millions of people use them. What benefits do people get using the sites?
There are some of the tasks that Omegle
and Chatroulette can help users to do:

chat-roulettes are no longer just an application for surfing the Internet, but
a tool for building relationships in social networks.
4. Make good use of time for dating.
You do not like the manner of conversation
of a random user? Just switch to the next one, never remembering the previous
one. Tact and commitment are, of course, important, but not always. If the
interlocutor does not like you, nothing will prevent you from finishing the
conversation with him/her.
5. Promotion of products.
You can play nice music on camera so that
random interlocutors are interested in what other resources you can find. You
can directly advertise what a cool blogger you are and so on.
To tell the truth, chat-roulettes are not
the best tools for advertising services, since they take a lot of time. But they
