I am sure by now many of you must have heard of ChatRoulette.com and what the 17 year old Russian kid was able to do. Well in my view there wasn’t a new technology invention but it was an interesting idea put together in a matter of hours. ChatRoulette.com allows you to randomly connect through a video chat with another stranger on the internet. This has sparked up a lot of curiosity among many net users. Chat Roulette at times had over 20,000 users at any one time using the system. Recently I have been notified by a few Chat Roulette Clone sites to talk about on my blog. I find many of them are exactly the same with no creativity. However, I was informed about GayCiti, the Chat Roulette for Gays, I thought they have done something important in their website business – capture the leads and provide additional services to keep the visitors on their sites. They have asked users to register before they get to use the free chat roulette. This way GayCiti is able to gather user information as the site grows.
Here is the information for you to visit GayCiti.com.
GayCiti.com – Gay Chat Roulette. It is made for the gay community and it provides a private Chat Roulette conversations compared to others where everyone can join in.
The point of this story is to let you know that we have always had hype around the internet with this sort of websites popping up left, right and center. However, mark my words, not a lot of people will remember ChatRoulette.com in a year or so. I’ve heard CamRoulette.com, the domain name alone, was sold for $15,000 recently. Someone is really wasting their time. No one is going to go to CamRoulette.com unless it is totally different and provides additional features than ChatRoulette.com. I wish the new buyer all the best.
If you come across such new ideas, I encourage you to take them and twist them and always do your best to capture the leads so you can always build on it later. Remember with the hype comes the traffic and it doesn’t last long. So it is important to think about your next steps early on than to wait for the traffic to die out.
