Social Networks Go Video

You might or might not learn about webcam social networking sites, or perhaps you've assumed they're somewhat unsavory. But not surprisingly, there's a large number of camcorder communities out there, and several of them are simply made to let people interact with others who have similar interests. While none of those webcam social networking sites is about to out pace Facebook, many of them possess a significant following and provide hundreds, otherwise thousands, of personal webcam feeds, as well as webcam chats with actors, singers, and TV personalities.

A webcam social network is just one other way that individuals who are online can interact, whether with friends, family, or complete strangers. It shouldn't be surprising that with the popularity of Skype, Google video chat, and Face Time, social networking sites that provide video interactions have grown in popularity. And somehow they have this somewhat seedy reputation. Why can you wish to watch strangers doing what they're doing? And what are they doing that is so interesting?

If you take time to complete a little shopping around in to the different webcam communities, you'll find that most of what individuals are doing on their webcam feeds is very the opposite of interesting. In fact, what draws people to watch the webcams of others is mysterious. Obviously, reality TV-like action can get attention, but since most webcam feeds are uploaded instantly, the experience can be very limited.

Perhaps it's the allure of the benign that pulls so many people to watch everyday routine that happens somewhere else. Maybe people are tired of watching inane drama. Perhaps we just desire to be reassured that if they live a basic, uneventful life, filled with little mistakes and small types of forgiveness, we're normal, too.
