It’s a little-known fact that anyone you chat with on Chatroulette can determine your IP address using a program like Wireshark.
We stand out against other gay chat sites because of our huge range of ways to meet hot gay guys.You can find six free gay chat options all on the one website, making it easier and more exciting than ever to meet men online.His last guest post was an analysis of Twitter user data. We were itching to study Chatroulette in a RJMetrics Dashboard, but no one seemed to have any good data for us to explore.So, we decided compile the data ourselves by leveraging Chatroulette Map, some scrappy programming, and a passionate tech community.We coded up a quick webpage that displayed a random photo from the data set and asked some basic multiple-choice questions about that photo.
These included questions on age, gender, and what the person in the photo was doing.
Chatroulette Map is also nice enough to expose all of its data points to anyone who clicks “View Source.” Right in the raw source code of their homepage is the image URL, latitude, longitude, city, state, and country of every chatter on their map.
As an added bonus, the file name of each image is a UNIX timestamp of when it was taken. (Note: we tried contacting the creators of Chatroulette Map to participate in this story but did not receive a response.) Once we had photos, times, and locations, we needed data on what was happening in each chat photo.
Getting the data, however, was a bit of a challenge.
The good news, however, is that a roulette wheel is the statistician’s best friend.
The central limit theorem tells us that a large set of random observations allows us to draw high-confidence conclusions about the underlying data set.
