The ChatRoulette Phenomenon
Chatroulette is no doubt the next true mass social phenomenon, after Facebook or Twitter. Created by a Russian kid, the website randomly connects you via webcam chat to anyone around the world.
Chatroulette was featured on Good Morning America, on Newsnight in the United Kingdom, in The New York Times, in New York magazine, and on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In only a few months it grew from 500 visitors a day upto 1.5 million users.
The level of popularity and notoriety reached by Chatroulette creates enormous room for niche random chat websites. And CamChat is the easiest and cheapest solution to start your own Chatroulette clone website.
