Good afternoon friends. I think many of you watch various entertainment videos on YouTube. One of the most popular areas of entertainment video has become the creation of pranks through chat roulette . Nowadays there are quite a lot of such pranks. Take the same Vovan and Lexus. And besides them, there are many other pranksters. Most likely, you subscribe to many of them, and so do I. But, most users do not engage in any pranks, but simply want to communicate with each other.
What is chat roulette, how does it work, what is its purpose?
Take, for example, video chat vOnline. Now its capabilities have expanded significantly. Now you can not only chat with various people you don’t know, but also watch the videos they created.
Watching such videos is an excellent opportunity to spend free time and relax. The functionality of this video chat is a bit like social networks.
But there is one distinctive feature. You can only view a video created by another user once. You won’t watch this video again. But, on the other hand, you can like the clip you like, or add the user who created the video as a friend. In addition, it is possible to write a message to the person who created the video. But, for this you need to register.
How did the idea of creating chat roulette come about?
Most likely, you think that video chat was created in America or Western Europe? But I have to disappoint you (or make you happy). A similar service was created here in Russia. And it was made not by the great Guru in the field of programming, but by an eleventh grader, a Moscow student – Andrei Ternovsky.
Andrey came up with a simple idea – to increase the number of users with whom you can communicate via Skype. At the same time, Andryusha decided to add a little intrigue to the conversation. It was because of this intrigue that his project received such success. Namely, the video chat user has no idea which interlocutor he will communicate with in a few seconds.
A worker from a factory somewhere in central Russia, a schoolboy from Malaysia, or a professor from America who got bored and just decided to chat with a good person can appear in the video chat window. The choice of interlocutor occurs randomly. If you do not want to communicate with this person, then you can interrupt the conversation at any time by simply clicking on the “Switch” button. In this case, the roulette will start spinning again.
Andrey created the first version of the video chat in 2009, literally in a couple of days, according to the author himself. The name of the project appeared in the creator’s head after he watched one of the films about Russian roulette.
Celebrities also use video chat
At the moment, this service has ceased to be a service for teenagers and minors. Now people of different ages, gender, nationality, and status communicate in this service. Among them are the stars. In particular, as already mentioned, YouTubers of various types, musicians, those who like to talk about politics, and so on like to use video chat.
Most of these services have an age limit, since many users began to upload videos from the “Strawberry” category (how could we not do this?). Moderators diligently ban such videos, but they do not always succeed.
Chat roulette is actively used in various entertainment shows. Mostly Western. Like the show Good Morning America , and such authoritative publications as the New York Times and the New Yorker .
Dating via video chat
In fact, for many single people, this is one of the main advantages of chat roulette. If you are a single man, then, for example, on the vOnline service you have the opportunity to select the “Search only girls” option.
This option belongs to the VIP category. But, many people use this function and find a partner and, most importantly, create families. And this is a very big plus in our world of digital technology, when people spend a long time at the computer and they simply don’t have time to communicate offline!
If you just want to chat, then you just need to select the “Search all” option. At the same time, as I already said, you may come across the most unexpected interlocutor.
How to communicate correctly in chat roulette?
- Don’t hide your face . Of course, you can also communicate anonymously. But is there any point in communicating if you hide your face? In this case, most likely, the interlocutor will simply click on the “Switch” button. Unless you come up with something original. For example, you start drawing a portrait of your interlocutor, and only your hands will be visible;
- Politeness is the key to successful communication. What is there to hide, in video roulette, conversations take place in different ways, since a wide variety of people from different walks of life take part in communication. Hence, if you start to be rude to your interlocutor, he will most likely switch you. But, if you communicate very politely, then there is 80 percent that the conversation will go along the intended path;
- Smile more . I think you don’t need to explain that in order to please your interlocutor, you need to smile as much as possible. The so-called “Gugus of Psychology” talk a lot about this. If you smile while looking into a person’s face, then on a subconscious level he will perceive it as if you are very happy with him, and will also begin to smile back at you. Then, your dialogue will be like between good old friends;
- Pay attention to your hairstyle. This is psychology again. It is much more pleasant to communicate with a nicely dressed, well-haired person. The interlocutor will understand that you take care of your appearance, and the conversation will go like clockwork!
- Try to stay relaxed. One person feels another on a subconscious level. And if you are shy, behave stiffly, then your interlocutor will lose the desire to communicate with you. Or he will start making fun of you – trolling. So, talk to the other person like you would a well-known friend, without worrying about what am I going to say in a minute?
- Polite parting. After talking with the interlocutor, do not forget to tell him at the end of the dialogue that you were glad to talk with him, and you will be glad to see him again in this online service!
Conclusion : I think it is now clear to you what chat roulette is and how it works? Use it for dating and simple communication. Good luck!
