Giving Thanks

This year, we wanted to give something back to our amazing members, so we’ve partnered with Props to award all our Camfrog members with Props tokens.

What are Props? Props are a new crypto token that can give you great benefits on multiple platforms and applications, including Camfrog! Props are your tokens that not only unlock special rewards on Camfrog, but they also give you a financial stake in the Props network itself!*

When you interact positively with other Camfrog members, you are creating a more valuable experience for everyone on the platform.¹ Props tokens enable us to reward you for your impact with valuable in-app perks as well as a financial stake in the future potential of the Props network²

Camfrog Partnering with Props

From now through the end of November, we’ve increased the earning rates of all eligible Props earning actions on Camfrog 5x! That means you’ll be earning Props and progressing to new rewards and bonuses faster than has ever been possible before!

We’ve also updated our bonus rewards for Props holders! For every 10 Props you earn on Camfrog, you’ll unlock a free exclusive bonus Virtual Gift to help you climb to a higher and higher achievement level, unlock bonus Camfrog Coins, and even get a new achievement icon next to your nick.

Earn bonus XP! When you reach certain Props Milestones you’ll unlock Bonus XP. This means, every time you send a Virtual Gift, you’ll get a percentage of the gift’s XP back to your own nickname, helping launch you to an even higher achievement level even faster!

We’re so excited to have you as a member of Camfrog, and we’re thankful to be able to show our thanks using Props. We know you’ll be excited about this awesome new token powering your Camfrog Rewards.

¹ Users of an app that integrates Props may be able to receive Props upon their review and acceptance of the terms and conditions for use of the app and the completion of certain other administrative steps. Non-US users of an app that integrates Props will be required to make their own determination as to whether such usage or any transfer of Props is in compliance with their relevant state and foreign securities laws.

²A “financial stake in the network” means the ability to participate in an increase in the value of Props if the use of our platform increases and results in an increase in the demand for, and therefore the value of, Props. Holders of Props will not receive an interest in the profits or losses of YouNow, Props PBC, any other YouNow affiliate, or Paltalk, Inc, any rights to distributions from YouNow, Props PBC, any other YouNow affiliate or Paltalk, Inc, or any legal or contractual right to exercise control over the operations or continued development of YouNow, Props PBC or any YouNow affiliate or any legal or contractual right to exercise control over the operations or continued development of Paltalk, Inc.

Unlock Free Videos For Everyone

We’re excited to announce a new rooms feature: Sponsored Video Slots.

You can sponsor 30 minutes of free video time for everyone in a room using Camfrog Coins. How does it work? In the Camfrog Store, there’s a new “Room Upgrades” tab, with a new “Sponsor A Free Video Slot” item, just enter the room name you want to sponsor a free video slot for, and purchase. Instantly, all free members in that room will be able to open an additional camera for 30 minutes!

Ok, but what about the fine print? The 30 minutes of 1 extra free video slot starts counting the moment you sponsor the extra video slot. Anyone can sponsor a free video slot in a room at any time. Extra video slot time cannot be extended. This means, if you sponsor a video slot, and 10 minutes later sponsor a video slot for the same room, that room now has 2 free videos, 1 that ends in 20 minutes, and one that ends in 30 minutes. There is no limit to the number of free video slots a room can have sponsored at a time. When a sponsored video slot expires, the extra cam window will close automatically.

In the next few days we’ll be introducing new improved in-room notifications so everyone in the room knows there’s a sponsored free video slot available!

Get the Ultimate Experience with a VIP Room

We’re excited to introduce our newest Room type to the Camfrog family: VIP Rooms

VIP Rooms don’t have a limit of how many Camfrog members or guests can be in your room at a time. The Room Owner will always be visible with a unique special “VIP Room Owner” icon and red nickname, but the biggest benefit of a VIP Room is reserved for the Camfrog Members in the Room:

All Free Camfrog Members can get 3 free videos at a time for up to 30 minutes per day in a VIP Room!

In a VIP Room nobody will miss out on any of the fun and action in the room! Join a VIP Room today by hopping over to the Room List or visiting videochat.camfrog.com

Want to take your Room to the next level? Check out available upgrade offers by logging in with your Room Owner nickname and hopping to your Room Settings

Promotions, Admins, and More! What’s New in Rooms

Introducing Promoted Rooms! Starting a new room, holding an event, or just want to get your room to the top of the list? Starting today, you can use Camfrog Coins to Promote any room to the top!

How does it work? There are 6 available Promoted room slots. When you promote a room, that room will appear in the #1 slot. When someone else promotes another room, your room will be bumped down to the #2 slot, then #3… When your Promoted room is in the #6 slot, and someone promotes another room, your room will be bumped out of the Promoted list. Note: Promoting Rooms is available in the latest version of Camfrog for Windows, and on https://videochat.camfrog.com – promotion support coming to mobile apps shortly.

How long do rooms appear in the Promoted list? There is no set time. Promotions can last for a day, a week, or even just a few moments. It depends on if other members promote other rooms and bump your room off the list.

How much does it cost to Promote a room? At launch, Promoting a room is a flat fee of 1,000 Camfrog Coins. This price may change in the future, or fluctuate based on factors including time of day, amount of members online, velocity at which rooms are being promoted, etc…

An Update on Room Roles

Camfrog Rooms have multiple user levels with different access authorizations.

1: Members. Members can join the room and chat with friends!

2: Friends. Friends of the room are room members that are given a special standout status. This is a great status to give to your room’s regulars. These can signified trusted members. Friends are able to send private messages within the room using the /msg command. 

Friends are signified with a blue smiley face next to their nickname in the room users list.

3: Moderators. Moderators are members who are given special abilities to kick, punish, or ban problematic members from the room.

Moderators are signified with a Green “M” icon in the room.

4: Admins. Admins are members who have extra permissions above Moderators. Admins can designate members as Friends or Moderators in the room, as well as manage some select room settings. Only the Room Owner can add members as Admins. 

Admins are signified with a Red “A” icon in the room. In older versions of Camfrog clients, these may be signified with a green “M” badge

5: Owner. This is the owner of the room. A Camfrog room can only have one account owner. The Owner account has full access to all account settings and permissions. The room owner is signified with a Gold House icon next to their nick.

Black Lives Matter

Communication has never been more important than it is right now. Here’s what we want to communicate today and all days:

Black Lives Matter.

Please join us in solidarity with and remembrance of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and the countless more whose names aren’t being said. We’re donating 10% of all our proceeds from Friday, June 12th, through Sunday, June 14th to the NAACP and the ACLU.
For more resources and to make a donation, tap the links above. We encourage global members to research organizations in your area, too

Camfrog is a platform for people of all races, from every walk of life. We endeavor to be a safe place of expression for all, but finding the balance between opposing beliefs isn’t always easy. We recognize that as a company we have an opportunity to improve our practices, educate ourselves, and actively stand against racism.

We understand that without substantial, systemic change, a fundraising weekend is only a first step. That is why we are taking these additional actions:

  • Increasing hours for support teams to address any reports of threatening, harassing, abusive, or hateful speech or images
  • Reworking our Terms of Service to better define and protect against hate speech
  • Retraining our support teams within these updated terms, with additional focus on care and service
  • Matching all employee donations to the NAACP and the ACLU

Free speech is important to us. Hate speech is not.

If you have concerns about a member or room within our community and believe that their actions violate the Terms of Service, please submit a confidential complaint here.

Thank you for your efforts, engagement, and support.

Sincerely,
Team Camfrog

Update on Live Broadcasting

Over the last couple of years, we’ve worked to bring the best social video experience we can to you. We’ve experimented and tried lots of different ways to improve. Some things stick around, some don’t.
Today we’re announcing that one of our experiments is coming to an end. We’ve come to the difficult decision to shut down Live Broadcasting on Camfrog as of Sunday, April 12th.

We didn’t come by this decision easily, but decided it’s time to refocus our attention and efforts on our core product and service: Group Video Chat. We have many exciting plans that we can’t wait to share with you, and are working hard to continue improving Camfrog to make it the best video chat experience you can have. We’d like to thank everyone who’s ever broadcasted on Live for helping grow our community, and we want to thank everyone who’s ever watched a broadcaster for being an amazing audience. We look forward to continuing to provide a fun interactive way to meet and chat with new friends around the world.

New Social Distancing Rules, Who ‘Dis? 🐸😁

Hey everyone,

We know life is pretty tense right now. COVID-19 is officially a pandemic, travel bans are expanding, and whole countries are on lockdown.

We’re lucky. As a digital communications platform, we don’t have services that require physical distribution or direct contact. On top of that, we’re a chat company and we serve a function that’s sorely needed right now. Communication is important to us. It’s our business, but it’s also something we believe in.

That’s why we’ve opened up free video for users in some of the most heavily impacted countries. Whether you’re in quarantine, working from home, or just trying to play it safe, we’ve got you covered.

We know how meaningful it is to see people face to face. When physical contact becomes ill-advised, video chat platforms like Camfrog support face to face interactions online. No need for handshakes, facemasks, or worrisome travel. Just put your pretty faces on cam.

If you live in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, or South Korea, you now have access to free video. You can use it to meet new people safely and ward off the isolation scaries, or to check in and keep in touch with family and friends worldwide. You can even use Camfrog rooms to watch Youtube videos with friends — share the link and get people chatting live.

In the coming weeks, we will monitor this list and expand anywhere that’s appropriate. For right now, please let us know if you’re having any trouble with the apps. We want to be sure that, as online numbers surge, we’re doing our best to serve you the best experience possible.
Stay safe and stay in touch. We care.

Best,
Team Camfrog
