Roulette Chat

Roulette chat is the latest in the social networking media. It allows the user to chat using webcams. This site is introducing face to face communication along with original form of internet chat. The name says it all… the user is put in a mix with other users, and it is luck of the draw with whom you end up with on the other end. When you are finished chatting or prefer not to chat with a specific person, you press an icon which randomly selects another new “online friend”. Experts have voiced concern about small children and tweens being able to access this chat site, due to the lack of filters or protections in place. This site, I believe, is blending face to face communication with cyberspace. This will have an effect on cyberspace when the written word is not present. Experts believe that visual and auditory sensors, such as seeing one’s emotions and hearing the intonation in their voice (which is obviously not present in the written word), will effect the way we view cyberspace. It gives you the power of presumption or prejudice of the person on the other end.

    I am amazed that so many different websites and services are provided for social interaction...

    Reading "New New Media," especially, gave me a whole different understanding on how many people use them and what they aspire to accomplish.

  3. Is it true that we can see our friends and vice versa through the computer without physically seeing each other? We better be careful with this new media not knowing who we will end up seeing. Amazing.

  4. I knew this website few days ago. And I used the website when I feld bored. At first, it was fun for me. I can practice English and chat others. But I found so many people use this website to do something bad. They dont want to make friends actually, so I think this website should be taken care. It might hire a lot of problem when people use it. However, I have to say, people who make this website is so creative, it is a good idea if people can use it on the good way.
