San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 02, 2012

PopChat.com, a free cam chat service recently launched by a popular free video chat site Stargazer Video Chat, released a new article about the online dating industry growth and a role of free video chat. PopChat.com is a relatively small cam chat website that has been gaining popularity with singles from around the world. It provides an access to free video chat rooms where people can cam chat free without creating complicated profiles. An advantage of PopChat.com over many other cam chat sites is that PopChat.com provides an access to already established and active video chat community, making it easy for singles to find friendship and love online.

The new article about online dating services and free video chat references an info-graphic published by mbaprograms.org that states that online dating grew from $900 million industry in 2007 to a $1.9 billion industry in 2012. The industry more than doubled in five years with 20 million people visited an online site in 2007, and this has grown to 40 million in 2012. Andre Starr, the founder of PopChat.com, attributes this growth to the simple fact that it is much easier to meet people online as it provides singles with many available options. Additionally, with the availability of free video chat and webcam chat features, meeting someone online allows singles to see each other and get to know each other well before committing to seeing each other in person.

One of the pitfalls of the traditional online dating is that it makes it easy for people to lie about their appearances or age, while video chat makes it much more effective when it comes to getting to know someone. With a webcam chat, people can see and hear someone, which makes it much more easier to verify physical qualities of each party. And when it comes to meeting people in free video chat rooms, it provides an additional benefit of being able to chat with multiple people and ease into a relationship without any kinds of pressures or worries of being rejected.

This research also shows the following key reasons why people like to use dating and free video chat sites, as opposed meeting a stranger face to face:

  • Getting to know the date from the comfort of a person's home. With free video chat and webcam chat it's like going on a date without leaving your room. Meeting and chatting random people can be fun!
  • Avoiding first-date jitters since a couple already met on-line and developed a rapport.
  • Searching for a mate beyond the local pool of eligible prospects or suitors.
  • Showing interest without the face-to-face rejection, and obvious ego deflation when it occurs.
