Most of us using computers not only for research and searching of things around the globe but also for chatting into our friends and love ones who is away from us. Our chat mate asking for webcam. I am not using of this... and they don't like to chat sometimes if i don't have cam or they leave me. What is the importance of having this device on chatting? Do you prefer to open webcam while chatting or not? Friends tell me about your insight about this. Thanks a lot and happy day to all!

Webcam gives more personal touch as your chat mate can easily see you expression and face and can judge whether you are interested in him or not. Sometimes men like to cht with webcam to see the pics of beutiful girl,and if the girl is notbeutiful they then won't chat with her. I don't prefer to use webcam while chat, coz I don't want to share my personal identity with strangers.

Most of the time those guys who do not like the face of their chatmate did not get back to their chat. And we both have the same reason I only share my cam to my friends and known chat person but not ina total stranger. Thanks to your reply and have a nice day!

I don't mind webcam chat as long as both people are using one. There's just something strange about chatting with someone who is watching YOU but you can't see THEM! It's probably only a matter of time before most phones include two-way video capability. Sometimes I'd like to go back to the simpler days.

Yes sometimes we feel the old way of communications. It is in the two persons how they communicate with or without cam device for as long as they understand each other. Thanks and have a better day to you friend!

Hello Mods. I only chat to friends and family online so I have no qualms about using my webcam. It's nice to see people who I haven't seen for a while even though it's only on the screen. I don't believe in using a webcam to chat to strangers like some people do and the kids certainly don't get to do that. Like all things, webcams are good but only if they're used right :)

same here, my chatmates want to view me on webcam, but i dont want to show myself on cam, especially if im not prepared, like if i just woke up,,, ^^i don't use webcam if im not familiar with the person too, but sometimes, i use it, especially if i feel like showing my chatmate myself,,, for me, the main reason of others using webcam is to know if you are a poser or not and to see if the avatar you are using is the real you,,, i do that sometimes too, only if we are of the same age though,,, ^^ hehehehe

Chatmates really wanted to view us on during chatting just to know if we are real or if we are really pretty! And sometimes we need to hide ourselves just to protect us from those who are taking advantage especially men. Let us be moderate in using cam. Thanks and have a nice day friend.

its important to have a cam mostly if you love that person. you need see the person face also to be sure the person is who she says she is. there are a lot of liars in internet so for sure having webcam is very important if you are chatting with someone^^ so thats normal if they leave for this reason bcs they are afraid you might be lying to them.

You are absolutely right my friend! This device helps us to know if they are true and not just making us fool. I really agree to have cam when we talk to our chat especially if they are new friend to us. Thanks to you and have a nice day!

it is very important because , it feels so real and close to our friends and family even if they are somewhere,to see and hear their voice help a lot ease the emptiness of their presence.

Yes i agree and this is the other way around to see our love ones who departed us. And this helps us also to recognize our new chatmate if they are really true! thanks to you and have a nice day!

You have to feel the way they look cause everything we think in our brain will have a visual effect in our mind .Our mind is more specific about things so it will be better if we know the person we are talking to..It increases your comfortability zone

I agree to you friend that our imaginations is more specific to what is being imagine. Mind power. So it is better to see the fact and figure out the real face of our chat mate. Thanks and have a great day friend!

During the time when telcos monopolized the communication industries, we dream of talking to our love ones on the phone and at the same time seeing each other in each other's end. Now that it is a reality, I guess we better take the opportunity to appreciate the reality brought about by high technology. Besides, watching your friends, relatives and loves ones while we talk with them gives us a little tickle and joy while we appreciate the appearance of the one we are talking to.

It's important so as to see if the one on the other end is trustworthy. Sometimes there are chatters who pose as girls but they are not, instead, they're gays. lol. So cams are really important and you can interact better too.

it also shows the nonverbal responses of the person. the expression and gestures you see would define one's personality. =)

Yes we can see now their facial expression we can see if they are telling slightly the truth and how nice that we can talk and see them like they are near to us. Thanks and have a nice day!

Hi, pal! Actually I prefer the old style mirc (I wander if somebody here knows it). It was popular chat software over 10 years ago. At that time, there was something really interesting and mysterious about chatting. No one though that just after few years we will be able to do video chatting. But, I thing that all these modern types of communication are forcing the people to stay home . . . chatting . . . I forgot about many friends when skype started to rule the world.
