You may have thought that web-based chat rooms was a thing of the past, but Tinychat – a simple audio, video, and text communication platform – has shown that users love to create web-based chat rooms. This nifty little website allows you to create your own impromptu chat-rooms quickly and easily. It’s a relatively painless process, as all you have to do is give your chatroom a name and enter your nickname.
One of the best parts about TinyChat is that you don’t have to register at all to enjoy the service. It makes a big difference, as it means that just about anyone with an internet connection can join in.
Since February 2009 Tinychat has expanded with better features, and more users. Now they see their users giving over 500 million minutes a month to the full-blown chat system. The site’s developers have also integrated Twitter into the mix, allowing you to text- and video-chat with Twitter users. It’s also possible to log in using your Twitter and Facebook accounts, with the option of automatically updating your status. It’s refreshing to see social network integration done as simple and painless as this, a far cry from similar efforts.
