One informal study published in March 2010 shows that nearly half of all Chatroulette "spins" connected a user with someone in the USA, while the next most likely country was France with 15%.
On average, in sessions showing a single person 89% of these were male and 11% were female.8% of spins showed multiple people behind the camera.At any point, either user may leave the current chat by initiating another random connection.He discusses that he did not advertise or post his site anywhere, in fact people starting talking about the website and the word of mouth spread gradually.
1 in 3 females appeared as such a group, and 1 in 12 males.A user was more likely to encounter a webcam featuring no person at all than one featuring a sole female.
