Video Chatting - Let's Get Connected With New Friendsby Sara C. Video Chat Room
Think about it. When's the last time you saw something incredible emerge in the world of video communication? It's been years! Exchanging video messages via our cellular devices is probably the most recent breakthrough in video chatting that we've had the privilege to enjoy, and since then things have been relatively quiet.
This isn't a bad thing. It just means that we're content. The only problem with this sort of sound stagnation is that there are too many copy cats these days. You can usually toss "free video chat" into Google and find yourself an endless roster of services that are begging you to sign up with them.
But what's the difference between these platforms? Why are companies trying to compete using the exact same technology as everyone else? And most of all - why the heck isn't there a champion yet?
The fact of the matter is that video chatting these days, well, stinks. With some services it's too simplified - dumbed down platforms with nothing more than a "next" button. Others are too complicated - new features are unnecessarily thrown at your face on a weekly basis. You waste computer space downloading and installing programs, which tends to make it terribly difficult to invite any friends to the snooze fest. And before you know it, you're working out your hard-earned cash just to do something that was originally thought to be free.
Let's make one thing clear here: free video chat should be FREE. Free means free!
Wait, did you get that? That means you should never bother signing up with a service that wants to charge you for video chatting, video conferencing or anything of the sort. Communication isn't a limited resource on the internet - it's abundant and ever-lasting. Putting a price tag on it is selfish and appalling, and the companies out there trying to get away with it should be sent to the crappy business graveyard.
Moreover, there's really no logical reason as to why we should have to download and install programs just to do some video chatting. All that these programs are doing is keeping us out of our web browsers where things are simple, quick and (most of all) personal. Not to mention there are a lot of new free video chat services out there that don't exactly have the greatest reputation yet and should be taken with a grain of salt - you'd be surprised how easy it is to pick up a computer virus these days.
So, if you could change anything about video chatting, what would it be? Is the "free video chat" service you're currently using actually free? Take some time to think about what matters to you when it comes to online communication - there are a lot of sites out there that don't deserve your membership.
