This website was launched clear back in February of 2005, and it had a huge impact on making video chatting the success it is today. First off, registration is required to use the website, but it’s worth it. Requiring registration often makes a community safer and less likely to have as much inappropriate content, so for this site I think it’s actually a good thing. You can still view most channels without registering, but you will not be able to chat or anything. In short, Stickam is a live streaming webcam channel community. Every user can have their own channel where they stream their own video feed. What a person does with their channel is up to them. For example, some people have weekly talkshows, some DJs have daily music, and some people just get online whenever they feel like it yet still establish a following. Basically, as long as you’re interesting, you can establish a following even without a schedule. Furthermore, when people view your channel they can also start streaming their own live video feed in 5 available smaller video spots, making the entire spectacle evermore intriguing.
With regards to popularity, Stickam is quite popular, although not as much as it was during its peak. I guess the main point is that there are plenty of users online any time of day to ensure you will not be bored or have any trouble finding someone new to chat with. The top country of origin for Stickam’s visitors is the USA, but they also get a lot of traffic from other countries all over the world. However, the average user will be English-speaking. In any case, I should also discuss whether or not they have a Chatroulette-style option. In short, they do! It’s called Stickam Shuffle, and yes, you still have to be registered to use it. Some people may not like the fact that you have to be logged in to use it, but this is probably the cleanest roulette webcam chatting option available in terms of not having adult content, so their policy definitely has benefits. But yea, that about does it, you can find the site at www.stickam.com.
