Has Hubpages evolved into a Social Network and is Video Chat next
The possibilities are endless
Anything is possible, I've written a hub about making much more effective communications on hubpages and beyond, and several how to hubs & tutorials to help those who have no idea how to form video communications, or use such technology as a webcam. Meeting people digitally is not difficult, but takes a bit of knowledge of the right tools to make meeting one another possible, but I do know for sure that some people will opt out of doing so, to maintain their privacy, and to keep their real identity safe from potential intrusion.
Not everyone wants their true identity discovered by 1000's or even 1,000,000's of strangers online, and you can't blame them either. Now there are some folks who don't hide behind their computers though, and been making efforts on networks like Google+ for achieving much more visibility, which helps them to leverage things for making better communications via the web today.
I think if video chat was made effective here on hubpages though, it could potentially pose a threat to the amount of time being spent hubbing in all other areas of hubpages, as it already takes huge amounts of time to write effectively, to read hubs, participate in forums, ask and answer questions accurately, and all the other many facets as well as communicative aspects of this powerful writers community.
Hubpages web developers are wise
I think this is a reality that the web developers of hubpages must have thought about for sure in the past, and since time factors are a huge element here on the web, video chat being built into hubpages to help followers communicate could also become an addictive issue, and mainly because chatting has already been proven to be super addictive.
Chatters tend to lose sight of what they're doing at times, and on many chat programs, especially peer to peer chatting networks with group chat, as well as video chat software online. I believe if the owners of hubpages wanted such a thing to exist it would have happened here a long time, but like I mentioned the time of use conflict poses a threat to other hubpages activities, that all do make a huge difference in how hubbing is effective for us writers or not.
I also wrote another hub about cool ideas to make for some respectable changes like using Google Plus hangouts, as an official meeting place to form hubpages communications between users looking to meet up digitally, and to be able to visually collaborate efforts. You just never know what the makers of hubpages may actually have up their digital sleeves, and if they're going to open up to any suggestions, or cool ideas they haven't yet enacted upon or thought of.
Paltalk, Yahoo Messenger, Skype
These chat client names above are some of the more familiar ones that many people have grown accustomed to using, and addicted to over time, and mainly Paltalk, where many members simply hook up their webcam's, and some of them even go to bed with it still on, I've seen it in many Video Chat rooms that are capable. webcam
The digital skies the limit when it comes to online applications of certain types of networking web designs, and tooling implementation for website owners today. Some websites have issues with loading speeds when it comes to having video communications, and so if a video chat client was to be added to hubpages some day, the web developers here would definitely have to account for such a potential loading issue of network web traffic, and server loading.
We will all surely see in the near future, but I do feel that hubpages would be better off the way it functions today, rather then having such distractions as video chat communications built into it.
