ChatRoulette made it popular by letting users to communicate random people by video chatting. However the site has not been developed much since its formation. While this might be a disappointment to its users, it definitely leaves room for other site creators to expand the Chatroulette concept to the next stage. A fine example of this is 6rounds.
6rounds is the first free product of the GixOO platform. Using the website, you can create a presentation or “personal slide show” which is used to inform other users about you. Each “˜round’ means connecting with another 6rounds user via video and textual chat.
During video chatting, both of you can add visual effects (much similar to “winks” in Windows Live Messenger). Rounds are initiated by specific invitation or by joining a room based on activity/game /topic. In these rooms you are automatically connected with people in the same room. In the middle of the round you and your chat partner can share many activities. These shareable activities include co-browsing on YouTube, Facebook, and playing numerous games with each other.
