    Chatroulette has been shut down. The site now hosts a message saying:

    "Announcement

    The experiment #1 is over now. Thanks for participating. Renewed and updated version of the website will be launched today."


    But what will change?
    The site could be made more interesting (and that it could avoid the incessant penis problem) by automatically directing users to people who are "nexted" the least. In theory, that could reduce the hit-and-miss nature of the experience, but it would be challenging to execute it right.
