Vid Java is a live video dating website. It focuses mostly on the live webcam functions to connect people rather than using algorithms/math to connect people based on compatibility like eharmony or okcupid does. This allows the user to be in control of who he/she wants to talk to rather than the computer calculating who would be best, although you can still refine your search options to only view specific people based on gender / age / location / etc.
This website requires the user to create an account to use. Accounts are free and there are no membership or payed features (at this time). Users are able to create a simple profile about them detailing things like their hobbies/ interests / education / about me / location. They are also asked to upload a picture of themselves to add as their profile picture. There are some very basic "social networking" functions on the site to allow communication between users aside from live video chat. These include adding a user as a friend, sending messages, and viewing other user's profiles. This website is NOT a social networking website. It is for dating only. There are no comments, picture albums, or profile updates.
The fundamental features of this website are the live video functions.
The live webcam functions let the user quickly weed out unwanted individuals with the click of a button. Since you can see who you are talking to live it is very clear if the person is who they say they are. Also live webcam chat helps to build a stronger connection over text chat alone.
There are 3 ways of connecting with someone in a private webcam room on this website
1.) The "Live Chat" feature connects two users either randomly or based on age/location/common interestsinto a private video chat room. Users are able to skip to another randomly selected use if they choose to by pressing the "next" button. ( like omegle or chatroulette)
2.)"Live Video Chat Request" Through the search profile feature a user may request a live video chat with another user. If the other user accepts, both users are connected into a private video chat room.
3.)The "Live Match" connects 9 random users into 1 room and allows each of them to select 1 user in the video match room. If two users select each other the system will connect them into a private video chat room allowing them to communicate further through video/text.
