"It reminded me of Adult Friend Finder back in the '90s.You've got that version of things, and then you've got a cleaned-up version of that, which has much more appeal." So Bunker, who made a name for himself in tech by creating an online dating site that later took the name Match.com, set out to tweak Ternovskiy's idea.The Localroulette and Channelroulette pages have disappeared, turning up 404s in their place.Chatroulette has also been stepping up its fight against people who expose themselves on the service.Chatroulette relaunched today after a week’s absence, with a new design on the front end and the disappearance of some recently launched features.But the site’s biggest problem — the preponderance of men flashing themselves to the video camera in chats — still remains.
The icon is disguised as “My Utilities,” so no one will ever guess there are private photos tucked away in your phone."You look at it and you go, 'How does a 17-year-old kid get to 20 to 30 million users without outside capital?' and you go, 'There must be a huge demand for this product,' " Bunker said of Chatroulette, which was founded by Andrey Ternovskiy, a Russian teen.Also changed is a big button underneath the video screen, which is no longer labeled “Next” but clearly meant for moving on to the next partner.But with the relaunch comes the disappearance of some recently launched features.
