One on one conversations isn't really the main hook of Tinychat. It thrives on group conversations, video conferences, and other interactive ways of meeting groups of people. For starters, you can't view other members' profiles unless you've upgraded to a premium package. However, it isn't that big of a deal since you can still send them private messages.
The main way you get to see other members is to enter chat rooms and participate in the group broadcast. You can broadcast yourself via video, audio, text, or all three, depending on which medium you are the most comfortable with.
What Tinychat sells is the experience of buying gifts, sending gifts, raising your "cool points," and promoting your room to go into the most coveted position, the Live Directory. All these special features are made to be cohesive and tailor your exclusive Tinychat experience.
One thing about this chat platform is how well thought-out their special features are and how these are integrated well in their ecosystem. Their features are interconnected to provide users with a fun way of connecting. But we'll get to that later.
Tinychat functions almost in a caste-like system where statuses are given high importance. Premium members have indicators such as badges--depending on your availed premium package. This means that Tinychat Pro users have different badges from Tinychat Extreme and Gold members.
Members also promote their rooms in order to be featured in the Live Directory. There is a section in it where users with the most "cool points" are featured. Status symbols are truly made to appear important on this site with the distinction of badges and featured chat rooms.
While there is enough usability left for standard accounts, Tinychat positions "status" and "exclusivity" in its premium packages. To raise your status on this website, you must have a premium account. These privileges entice young people who crave popularity and love the hustle to the top of the Live Directory Page.
