Tinychat, you sure got big fast.
The Glen Cove-based company provides a simple, free web-based video chat service where up to 12 people can join a video chat room.
It’s easy to see why it became so popular – the application is designed to spread virally among Facebook friends, as you can invite online contacts to join you in a live video chat in a snap, through Facebook Chat, without the need for your friend to have the application installed.
The best part about this success story is that the two-year old Tinychat is 100% bootstrapped — apparently that’s possible in the suburbs!
