ChatRandom Breaks the Ice on Less Complicated Online Dating Site's safer, smarter video chatting leads to explosive user numbers and online connections

LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With today's webcam technology, meeting random strangers worldwide no longer has to be complicated, costly or risky. ChatRandom has harnessed that technology to blow away the stereotypes associated with many popular webcam-based chatroom sites.

Based in the United States, ChatRandom has grown to more than 200,000 users and supported over 21 billion connections since its 2011 launch. The site has gained rapid popularity for it agility in creating a forum where users can break the ice with people from many cultures, make meaningful connections, and possibly even find romance.

ChatRandom has also become a quick hit because it has pioneered a safer approach to chat by requiring users to be 18+. The site seriously upholds its user terms of service by employing full-time monitors who swiftly shut down illegal activity or usage by minors. Empowered with customized settings, users can finally chat on video worry-free and focus on meeting new people, according to ChatRandom's co-founder, Allen Fox.

"What we did with ChatRandom is identify what was toxic about the video chatroom environment and cleaned it up with some key protective and preventative measures," Fox says. "Our users appreciate this unique aspect and respect our site -- or they're not allowed to participate. The goal here is to help people build successful not seedy connections. And considering our explosive user and connection numbers, this model is definitely working."

Fox cites several other ChatRandom features that have made it a rising star in online chat. By not requiring users to fill out lengthy and time-draining profiles, the ChatRandom process is less formal and complex from the get-go. Want to chat? Simply go to the site and start chatting.

ChatRandom also eliminates prohibitive membership fees. The site is a completely free platform for creating and building relationships -- and a springboard to face-to-face encounters, real dating opportunities, lifelong romance and love.

"I was video chatting on your site and meeting many cool people around the world," says ChatRandom member Andrew H. "After using your site for a few days, I met the girl of my dreams. We have since gone on many dates and a vacation together. I am now seriously considering asking her to marry me! This all would not have been possible without ChatRandom."

While dating websites and online chatrooms are a dime a dozen, ChatRandom enters the marketplace at a time when such venues are one-dimensional. Fox and the site's co-founders have instigated a near revolution in chatroom technology.

"We've burst the one-page model to offer multi-chat and multi-user chatrooms, which is boosting sociability and improving the odds of richer connections," Fox concludes. "Simply put, it's what people want, so don't underestimate it. We're expecting ChatRandom to evolve globally into a household name."
