PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 21, 2012 - Using online video chat sites is no longer considered unusual, it is becoming more mainstream because of the ease and convenience it is providing for singles to find love. Whether it is young professionals who have recently moved to a big city such as London or New York; recently divorced people who are looking for a new love in their life; or simply those people that are shy when it comes to talking to others, meeting someone in a chat room is proving popular. Match.com, one of the more prominent sites, now boasts over twenty million members worldwide, with a large percentage of them being based in the USA, UK, and Europe.
A research company Chadwick Martin Bailey was authorized to carry out a study on various aspects of dating online. After surveying 11,000 people, they discovered that one in every six marriages in 2009 were between people that had initially used a dating website. This compares very favorably with other so called typical methods of meeting someone, such as being introduced by a friend, or meeting someone in a bar or club.
Despite this huge popularity, the media does still raise scare stories from time to time about meeting someone online or in a video chat room. Whilst there are always potential problems that can occur when meeting someone in real life or online, there are certain steps that can be taken to safeguard both personal information and safety through video chat websites.
Match.com offers many dating safety tips which can also be applied to many free cam chat sites including Stargazer Video Chat. The most important one that is to stay in control, and at first, stay within the site, and therefore avoid following external links to potentially harmful content. This way it is possible to communicate with people through a medium which is the site itself. If at any point a member feels uncomfortable, they can simply block the other person from communicating with them. There are also mechanisms to report either offensive or worrying behavior to an in-house monitoring team, thus contributing to a safe environment for all the users.
