The Best Seasons to Use Cam Sites

Cam sites such as Chatrandom are generally jam packed with thousands of users online at any given time. However, users often wonder what is the best season for meeting other people on these sites and how can the season impact how many users are online?

This is a massively important factor because the diversity of people online can change dramatically depending on the season. Think about it, if it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere countries such as the US and the UK, then it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere countries such as Australia and South Africa.

These differences in seasons can mean there are certain times when you are more likely to encounter someone from the other side of the world. If you are dying to meet someone from another Hemisphere then it is essential to understand in which season people are more likely to spend time online.

Spring/Summer in the Northern Hemisphere

Spring and summer in the Northern Hemisphere runs from March until August and it is statistically the time when less people from this region are online. When the weather is hot and the days are longer people are more likely to be out during the day and then go online in the late evening and night time when the sun is setting.

At the same time in Southern Hemisphere countries such as Australia, South Africa, and Asian countries, the days are much shorter and the weather is colder leading to an influx of people logging into cam sites. Due to this the daytime hours during spring and summer in countries such as the US, UK and Canada are great times to meet people from the Southern Hemisphere.

Spring/Summer in the Southern Hemisphere

Between the months of September and February, the roles are reversed and the days become much shorter in the Northern Hemisphere. This leads to people spending more time online as it is too cold to venture outside. Equally in the Southern Hemisphere, the days are longer and the sun is brighter leading to people spending less time online during the day and more time online at night.

Due to this when people log onto a cam site at this time, they are more likely to encounter people from the US, UK and Canada. If you log on in the US and are hoping to meet someone from the other side of the world, your chances are dramatically decreased during this time of year.

Best Seasons

If you want to encounter the maximum variety of people from all over the world then the best time to log onto a cam site is in the spring or fall months. The reason for this is that neither side of the world is at its peak daylight hours and people will still generally go online for longer hours than during the summer.

For instance, the most popular cam site Chatrandom sees a huge amount of people from all over the world on a daily basis. However, during the spring and fall months, the times people are online from different Hemispheres tends to coincide much better than during the summer and winter months. So if you are looking to chat with someone from the other side of the world, use Chatrandom during the spring and fall seasons.

 

What to Expect From Video Chat in 2015

With 2014 being another huge year for video chat, many sites are looking forward to 2015 and what new features and changes they will bring in to enhance the experience. This year has seen the biggest ever increase of users taking advantage of video chat sites and services, with hundreds of thousands of people logging on every day. With video chat’s popularity rise comes fresh ideas and innovation as sites and companies compete for users, trying to make their video chat more attractive and exciting. We’ve had a chat with some of the major video chat sites to find out what they have planned for us in 2015 and here’s what we found out:

Mobile Video Chat

This has been in the pipeline for a while now and it seems that 2015 is the year we will finally be able to video chat using our smartphones. There have literally been thousands of requests for the service to be available on smartphones and it seems that the launch day isn’t too far away. People are constantly looking for new ways to communicate on the go and with the rise in video chat sites, many want to be able to chat randomly while sitting in a café or taking a stroll. Almost everyone owns a smartphone with a webcam these days so the only obstacle left to maneuver is to perfect the app and ensure it is suitable for release. It seems that time is 2015.

Search Users by Distance

A hugely enjoyable part of using video chat is that you have no idea who the next person you’re going to be chatting to is. They could be of any sex, from any country, and speak any language. However, recent studies from video chat users have found that sometimes people want to be able to chat with others who are closer to them geographically. This has been taken into account and video chat sites are now working on a location filter which can be set to only connect with people who are within a certain radius. For instance, you can set the radius to 5 miles or 100 miles. The video chat will still randomly connect you with people, but only people within the set radius. We’ve been told to expect this feature on video chat sites by early 2015.

HD Webcam Only Chat

When using video chat, nothing is more frustrating than when you’re using a state-of-the-art HD webcam with a crystal clear picture and the person you’re chatting to is using a cheap webcam with a poor quality picture. It takes away from the experience as you’re struggling to make out their arm from their leg, while they can see you in crystal clear HD. Well, this problem has been recognized and developers are working on an algorithm which will identify the quality of each user’s webcam and match similar quality webcams together. This will mean a better connection with the people you meet on video chat sites and a more enjoyable experience.

Top 6 Countries Where Chat Sites are Most Popular

The most appealing aspect of chat sites is the ability to chat with people from all over the world. No matter what country someone is in, they can simply navigate to a chat site and meet people from a country on the other side of the world. Having said that, chat sites are more popular in some countries than in others. The chances of meeting people from countries on this list is higher than meeting people from a country where chat sites aren’t as popular.

After comparing data from Alexa and spending hours of research, we have compiled a list of the top 6 countries where chat sites are most popular. When you head over to your favorite chat site you are more than likely going to run into someone from at least one of these countries:

1.       The United States

The first chat sites and the most popular chat sites are based in the United States, so it is little wonder they are top of the list. Whenever you use a chat site, no matter what time of day or year, there is bound to be loads of other users from the United States. Most of the population in the United States use chat sites on a regular basis.

2.       United Kingdom

Next on the list is the United Kingdom, boasting huge numbers of users. Although the population of the United Kingdom is much smaller than that of the United States, it is still very likely you’ll end up chatting to someone with a British accent. It seems that the majority of users from the United Kingdom are from England, although you will occasionally meet some Scottish, Welsh, and Irish people too.

3.       Germany

Surprisingly, Germany complete the top 3, with chat sites proving immensely popular with the Germans. Germany has developed many German language chat sites, but, it seems the chat sites developed in the United States are the most popular in this country. English is commonly spoken by the Germans and they love to meet native speakers to improve their language skills.

4.       Australia

Head Down Under and you will find a buzz about chatting online. The Australians feel quite separated from the rest of the Western world and use chat sites as a way to communicate with people who share similar interests. The time difference means you’re most likely to find Australians online at strange times, but, when it’s evening in Australia the chat sites are full of them.

5.       India

With a population of 1 billion people, it’s little wonder there are loads of Indian people using chat sites. The majority of users from India tend to be guys, as women don’t enjoy the same freedom online that we do. However, the culture of chatting online is steadily increasing and changing in India, with more and more girls using chat services too.

6.       Brazil

Completing the top 6 list is Brazil, where a growing economy has led to many people enjoying internet access and the socializing that comes with it. A few years ago Brazil wouldn’t have been anywhere near the top 6, but as the economy improves you can find loads more Brazilians in chat sites across the internet.

7 Tips to Become a Better Friend

Being a good friend can be difficult at times, but a lasting friendship is something which can be truly treasured. A friend is someone who suffers the bad times as well as enjoying the good times and is always there to be relied on. Forming a friendship can take time and isn’t something that simply happens overnight. However, if you have formed the basis of a friendship then you can use these 7 tips to become a better friend.

1.        Don’t Break Your Promises

The simple way to do this is don’t make promises you know you can’t keep. Of course there are times when promises are broken because of circumstances out of our control, but if you constantly break promises you will be seen as unreliable. If you say you are going to meet someone at a specific time or video chat on a certain day, try your best to keep the date and turn up.

2.       Know When To Apologize

We all make mistakes and knowing when to admit it is important to any friendship. If you have made a mistake it is much better to own up to it than for you to deny it and the mistake be found out at a later date. Although it may cause some initial anger, apologizing and admitting a mistake up front will demonstrate your ability to be truthful and dependable as a friend.

3.       Don’t Use Someone For Your Benefit

A friendship should be based on equality and using someone for your personal benefit is not a real friendship. Real friendships aren’t built around what one person can do for the other, but are based on shared interests and the enjoyment of being in each other’s company. Think about how you’d feel if someone was using you for their personal gain.

4.       Be Loyal

Loyalty to your friends will increase the bond between you both. If your friend decides to tell you a personal secret or something embarrassing in confidence, don’t then go around and spread it as a rumor. The same goes for talking about your friend to a third party, don’t say things about them you wouldn’t say to their face.

5.       Respect Each Other

True friends will always respect each other by openly supporting the other in their endeavors. If you have a friend who has different religious beliefs, respect their choice and be open to discussing them. You should both feel comfortable in expressing opinions with each other, whether or not you agree with them.

6.       Be Supportive

If your friend is having a bad time because of work or personal problem, be there to support them. Ask them what the problem is and attempt to offer a solution. Sometimes the best thing a friend can do in this situation is to simply be there and listen. Forming a true friendship means being there for the other person no matter what they need and supporting them through it.

7.       Know How To Forgive

Holding a grudge against a friend for doing something wrong will lead to the termination of the friendship. Having the ability to let go and forgive a friend for a wrongdoing can increase the bond between you both and make the friendship stronger. If your friend has sincerely apologized for doing something wrong, try to move on and don’t allow resentment to build up.
