MyFreeCams Infographic: Full Analysis On Models And Site Activity

MyFreeCams Infographic: Full Analysis On Models And Site Activity

We all know that MyFreeCams is a big camsite. But how big is it in numbers? This MyFreeCams infographic will show some insights using real and accurate data collected by MyCamgirl.

The goal is to answer questions like How many girls work on MyFreeCams? How much do members spend on the site? Can camgirls make good money with private chats?

For that, I will use the data collected by the bots. If you want to see more data about MFC, I invite you to check this camsite-dedicated page about MyFreeCams. There is different data and more historical data there.

I promise not to be just a boring infographic with many graphs. I will actually add valuable comments to give context to the data.

Where Does This Data Come From?

It is a fair question. From the bots with some black magic. Unlike other camsites, MyFreeCams does not have an official API that provides data to developers. That’s where the black magic does the trick.

Basically, the bots see everything that any regular member can see—actually, they see just like guests. So, they can only see what is public.

MyCamgirl's bot

This means that if a model geoblocks the country where the bots are located, then this model won’t exist in the database. But in general, the bots can see every model because they (the bots) are located in major countries that no sane model would consider blocking due to the great traffic coming from these locations.

Also, it is important to mention that if a camgirl has her Stats page disabled, her data still counts towards the global data. She won’t be identified anywhere.

When Was This Data Updated?

All the data in this post has been updated on March 19, 2024. The bots usually run the analysis every day. However, due to the huge amount of data to process, some data takes longer to process and update.

MyFreeCams Active Models

MyFreeCams has exactly 12093 active accounts that have logged into the site and broadcast in the past 30 days. That is quite an impressive number.

Please note that I said broadcast. I am only counting those who turned their webcams on and were, therefore, available for private and group shows.

The average number of camgirls you can find online on MyFreeCams at any given time is 769, which gives you plenty of options.

The average number of camgirls you can find online on MyFreeCams at any given time is 769, which gives you plenty of options.

Most of its models are from Romania. This is quite different from most camsites, with Colombia as the top country. But honestly, Romania has been one of the top countries on MyFreeCams for years.

There are around 769 models online on MyFreeCams, with most being from Romania

True Active Models

The problem with the information above is that it counts all accounts that have been online in the past 30 days. It means that if a model logged in for just a minute, it will count as an active model.

So, I decided to filter the active models and count only those that have been online for at least 1 hour and 39 minutes. Why exactly this many hours? Because that is the average daily time spent online by all models.

1 hour and 39 minutes is how much time models usually spend on MyFreeCams every day.

Based on the past 30 days, MyFreeCams has a total of 8831 models that have been online for at least 1 hour and 39 minutes. I think this is a fairer way to count active models than every single account created online.

Models Online Every Day For One Hour

I can filter it even more and consider only the models that have been online every day for at least one hour per day. This gives us an idea of how many camgirls systematically log into MyFreeCams.

On average, 3768 different models get online every day on MyFreeCams for at least one hour. To make it more authentic, if you can say that, I didn’t count weekends.

When Is The Busiest Moment On MyFreeCams?

We need to break this down into two categories: Camgirls and tippers.

I will not consider viewers for this one because viewers can be guests with no money. They count nothing in a for-profit business.

So, camgirls. When do they normally come online?

There was a graph here using Everviz. Their platform was free but kind of buggy and not intuitive at all. But for what I needed, it was working okay-ish. In 2024, they decided to kill the free option and introduce an insane $600/month entry-level plan. For an incomplete and buggy product that I use only one graph, I don’t think it is worth $600. Therefore, the graph that was here is currently disabled.

Note: The heatmap above uses UTC.

I already wrote about the top busiest camsites in terms of camgirls online, and although MyFreeCams is in the top 5, it is not the busiest camsite.

I would say that, naturally, there is a correlation. After all, if there are no camgirls online, then there are no tippers.

How Many New Camgirls Join MyFreeCams?

On average, every day 7 new camgirls join MyFreeCams. I can say that this number used to be higher, at least double, back in 2015. But still, there are quite a lot of new girls to join the pool.

Where Are MyFreeCams Models From?

As said before, most models you find on MyFreeCams are from Romania. There are 336 models from Romania. But it is not a clear winner because United States comes right after with 249 models.

A quick note: These numbers should be higher, but I am showing only the camgirls with confirmed countries here.

This differs from 2008-2015, when many MyFreeCams models were from the United States. That period was the American inflation when American girls found out about camming. It was also the first time I saw studios opening in the United States. Before that, finding an American camgirl was uncommon, and studios were non-existent.

On the other hand, camgirls from Eastern Europe, namely from Romania, Poland, Czechia, Ukraine, and Russia, have been in the camming business since the beginning.

How Old Are The Camgirls On MyFreeCams?

I will just throw the average age: 30 years old.

However, things are not that simple with models’ ages. The ages in models’ profiles are based on the birthdays they set. It does not always represent their ages because that birthday is just a text field that models can change at any time.

In fact, that is precisely what many girls do. That explains those 108-year-old girls I never saw on any list for the oldest woman in the world.

That being said, the bots don’t take into account 108-year-old girls. Also, the girls subtracting years from their ages, the bots consider the highest value. For example, if a model is known for being 25 years old and changes that to 22 years old, the bot will ignore the change and assume she is 25.

Why Camgirls Lie About Their Ages?

Aside from obvious privacy reasons, it is because they are afraid of losing traffic.

I wouldn’t put this out there as the reason if I haven’t heard it from camgirls. Over the years, more than a few camgirls have asked me to hide or change their ages. The reason? Simply put, they fear members won’t go to their rooms if they are listed 25+.

As someone who has been using camsites for years, I can tell you that age was never a factor in deciding whether to spend money on a girl or not. I can even say as much as this: In almost all aspects, age is not relevant at all for most members.

It’s just a theory, but what I think may happen is that members get tired. Many girls start when they are young, and members who follow them for years may get tired of them at some point. not because they are old, but because they have been spending time with the same girl for years. Of course, it aligns with the fact that the girl is getting old, too. That’s why girls assume this is about age when it is not.

Are Chat Rooms Overcrowded On MyFreeCams?

That is a valid question because I know how hard and frustrating it is to be in a room with so many members. It is impossible to interact with the camgirl or anyone else.

You can expect at least 11 viewers in most chat rooms. That relatively low number allows anyone to participate in the chat without getting lost.

The average is about 11 viewers in many rooms. But expect something like 102 people watching top models.

However, bear in mind that this includes all chat rooms. So, those rooms with one or two viewers are pulling the average down.

Naturally, this number goes up if the girl is popular. Among the top 100 girls (based on CamScore, not the Miss MFC), the average is 102 viewers.

MyFreeCams camgirl in private chat

MyFreeCams is a tip-driven camsite. The whole idea is for members to tip to get things going. Therefore, you won’t see many camgirls busy in Private Chat or Group Shows.

Assuming that 769 camgirls are usually online, then you can say that almost no one goes to the traditionally paid sessions because at any given time, only 18 camgirls are busy in private chat.

This number may look low, but it adds up. If we consider the last 30 days, then we will find out that camgirls had at least one private chat. That is close to the total number of models online in the same period.

It is almost like saying that almost all camgirls have a chance to go private. With a few exceptions, a camgirl does not have a private if she does not want to.

It is important to note that top models don’t take private chats. They can if they want, but they don’t because performing private shows is not the best strategy for reaching the top.

How Much Time Camgirls Spend In Private Chat?

One thing is to have a private chat; a completely different thing is how long a member will stay in a private chat. After all, it is worth nothing to go into a private chat only to have the member end it shortly after.

Usually, MyFreeCams members stay in private chat for about 11 minutes

The Group Show Is Dead

The once very popular Group Show is now rarely used, with no more than 2 group shows happening.

That really is a low number for a paid session that used to have at least 3 more than that, with some girls having over 50 paying members. Now MyFreeCams don’t even show details about Group Shows anymore.

By the way, usually 4 camgirls are busy in Club Shows. That is interesting because, essentially, Club Shows are the same as Group Shows but for those who are paying subscribers of the model’s Club. So, charging a subscription to a show that originally didn’t require a subscription does not necessarily send members away.

What Are The Other Camsites MyFreeCams Models Use?

I don’t need to look at the data to know the answer: Chaturbate!

This data relies on your help in adding models to CWSW. Without that, I wouldn’t know where else a camgirl works. So, thanks for your help.

I combined that information from CWSW with the activity data (to consider only active camgirls,) and then I got the insight.

But how many MyFreeCams models actually have accounts on Chaturbate? Right now, 220 models from MyFreeCams also have active accounts on Chaturbate.

LiveJasmin comes in second with 82 camgirls working on both MyFreeCams and LiveJasmin.

To get to these numbers, I counted camgirls that have accounts on both camsites and they are active on both camsites (though not necessarily getting online on both camsites at the same time.)

Interestingly, even though the camming landscape has changed a lot in the past ten years, the number of MyFreeCams camgirls working on other camsites is still the same. The main competitor changed because Chaturbate was just starting in 2011. But overall, the number of camgirls resourcing to other platforms stays the same.

Of course, the studios play a big role here because the usual strategy studios use, which is to put a girl to work in multiple camsites, inflates this number. It does not necessarily mean that many girls have decided to join a second camsite.

Miss MFC

Oh, right, the famous Miss MFC. Perhaps one of the best ideas MyFreeCams had was to get people to spend money on the site. The competition isn’t really much among camgirls but among members. They want to help their favorite girl reach the sky. But there is only one way to help: Tipping!

Anyway, in the beginning, the goal was to be number one, which was fairly possible for many of the girls. Then, the competition started getting tough and being in the top 20 was a big achievement. If a girl finished in the top 100, it was already a reason to throw a party.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that girls are happy with less now. On the contrary, finishing top 100 today is the same as finishing number one in 2008. The amount of tokens members need to tip to make a girl top 100 is more or less the amount it would need to make a girl number one many years ago.

How Long To Win Miss MFC

That is the supreme goal for any girl. Since its first edition in 2008, 72 different girls have gathered the highly desired crowd. We are talking about a contest that already has over 171 editions. But only 72 girls have received the honor of being number one.

And how long does it take for a girl to be Miss MFC, if she gets that at all? It takes roughly 46 weeks. That is quite a slow rise to the top.

Even Kati3kat, a huge star on Chaturbate, took a whole year to be number one, though she finished #3 in just five months after moving to MyFreeCams.

It Used To Be Easy

As an interesting fact, an MFC model I used to talk to around 2009 finished in a high place on the Top 20 back in 2008. Later, she revealed that she made around $7000 that month. Yep, “only” that. Today this wouldn’t get any girl near Top 20. Another fun fact is that she said that almost all the money she made came from one member. That is something that still happens today.

It is indeed very hard for a camgirl to finish in #1 nowadays. Just because some girls have repeatedly gotten the crowd does not mean it is that easy. Maybe they make it look so easy, but it is not.

Even when you look at MissAmerica_, who won the Miss MFC contest 10 times. It may look easy, but it is far from that. It takes some luck, but staying at the top requires more than luck.

How Long To Reach Top 20

Since being #1 became very hard to achieve, the Top 20 became seen as much desired as #1. As some camgirls used to say, #1 is just a title. At this moment, finishing anywhere near #1 is worth as much as getting the golden crowd.

In the end, it is really just a title. Often, people don’t remember the winner. Tell me: Do you remember who was the #1 Miss MFC in December 2019? If you remember, I bet $100 that you are either a die-hard fanboy or a bitter hater.

But anyway, what about the numbers for the Top 20? Naturally, a lot more camgirls have finished on Top 20. To be precise, 572 camgirls have finished the month ranked anywhere between 2 and 20.

Naturally, securing a spot in the Top 20 takes less time than getting #1. But it still takes quite a long time—about 40 weeks for a camgirl to put her name there.

Are you also wondering who finished on Top 20 the most? That is Kati3kat! She finished on the prestigious Top 20 rank 96 times.

How Long To Reach Top 100

I would say that the Top 100 is more relaxed. While dropping a position in the Top 20 is faced by the girl and her fans as a huge loss, when a girl drops a position in the Top 100, they tend to take this as part of the process.

Usually, they even drop more than one position. But they also go up more than one position. Because smaller tips have more influence there, it is relatively easy to shuffle the rank.

On average, a camgirl who starts camming at MyFreeCams today will take something like 30 weeks to make the Top 100.

How Much Do People Spend On MyFreeCams?

Since MyFreeCams has its business based on a tipping system, it is obvious that most of the money people spend on MyFreeCams is on tips. MyCamgirl has a page dedicated to MFC’s biggest tips, with tips dating back to 2011.

As mentioned before, the most popular session on MyFreeCams is private chat. But with just 18 private chats going on at any given time, this cannot beat the tips.

I remind you that the bots are just regular guests. They can’t see ninja tips or any tip that happens in any paid session.

Quick note: Whenever I mention numbers in dollars, it refers to the amount the camgirl receives. It is impossible to say how much costs one token to members because the value fluctuates depending on many factors.

Ok, let’s talk numbers.

How Many Tips Per Second?

Every second, there are 4 tips being sent on MyFreeCams. More or less 20 tokens per tip.

Before you grab a calculator and try to figure out how much money MyFreeCams makes, let me remind you that these numbers only include public tips. They do not consider hidden/offline tips, private chats, group shows, or anything else. These are just public tips. So, if you think the numbers are not as high as you expect, maybe it is because a lot of action happens away from the public eye.

The thing is, there is a huge difference between a 1-token tip and a 1000-token tip. There is an exact 999-token difference, to be precise.

I was going to put a graph here with the tipping breakdown, but the graph wouldn’t be very useful, as over 95% of the tips ranged between 1 and 99 tokens.

One Token Tip Is The King

Well, with so many one-token tips, I would say that the famous yellow wall is still a thing on MyFreeCams.

For those unfamiliar, the yellow wall is when one or more members send multiple tips with almost no interval between tips. Naturally, sending one token tip is the cheapest way to accomplish that.

One token tip seems like nothing, but if you consider that one token was tipped 6,861,933 times in the past 30 days, that is $343,097 that was sent to camgirls in the form of one token tip!

My point is that these small tips happen, and they account for a big chunk of money. It may seem like nothing, but in the end, it is money that is there, flowing in the system, and camgirls shouldn’t ignore this.

How Many Girls Get A Tip?

Still on the subject of how many tips happen. Let’s see how many girls get a tip. The graph below compares online models vs models that got a tip (any amount.)

This is a very good way to see how much activity is happening. It also encourages those girls not getting any tips to see that with so many girls getting tips, they will eventually get tips, too.

How Many Members Are Active Tippers?

In the past 30 days, there were exactly 32,704 members that tipped at least once more than 599 tokens.

Why exactly 599 tokens? Because that would be ~$29.99 (to the girl), which was the usual price for a monthly subscription to any traditional porn site back in the day when traditional porn sites were a thing. They still charge that, though. It was to compare.

I can’t figure out how much $29.99 would be in tokens for the tipper because the USD-Token value is not linear.

Having a lot of viewers is not a sign of popularity. Sorry, a camsite doesn’t really work like Instagram. It is a paid service; popularity should be measured with tokens. If people are watching or lurking, a camgirl isn’t that popular. Ouch, this sounds a bit cold.

But just counting tokens isn’t a good metric if you don’t consider how many members are tipping. A girl getting 10,000 tokens per minute from one single guy isn’t the same as a girl getting the same 10,000 tokens from 20 guys.

In the first case, one guy thinks the girl deserves his tokens. In the other example, 20 guys are willing to tip her. Therefore, same amount, different situation.

For this analysis, I will look at the Top 20 and the number of tippers they received. But I won’t count casual tippers (someone who tipped only once or twice). I will not count tips under ten tokens or any tipper representing only 0.01% of the total tokens.

I won’t say from what month exactly (it is just a random month from the past six months), and I won’t reveal the girls’ names. Don’t try to guess because the list is not in any particular order.

A Top 20 model has around 66 members actively tipping her through the month

Important note about this data: It takes about three days to process all tips from one month. But overall, the results from month to month are basically the same. Therefore, this particular data isn’t updated often because it takes too long to process.

What Is The Impact Of The 0.01% Tippers?

They should count for something, no? Yes, they do count, of course. Every tip counts. Among the Top 20, small tippers usually represent 6.61% of the tokens.

Except for unusual cases, camgirls in the Top 20 have about 47 casual tippers who contribute 6.79% of the tokens.

Top Tippers’ Effort

A different way to look at tippers is to consider how much the biggest tipper contributed to a model’s final rank.

Once again, I won’t be naming names. But I can say as much as this: In one particular month, a model finished very high in the top 20, and 97% of the tokens came from one member!

Using logic, this model shouldn’t be considered popular since her rank is based solely on one member. Compared to another model whose top tipper represents as low as 9%, I would say that this one is a bit more popular. After all, if her top tipper represents 9% of the tokens, this means that she has many other members tipping her.

However, I must say that it isn’t that common to have one guy heavily tipping almost 100% of the tokens.

On average, the top tipper of each model in the Top 20 represents around 35.8% of her tokens

Here is a graph showing how much the top tipper of each girl in the Top 20 contributed to her rank. Again, the models’ names won’t be revealed.

Give Me Your Feedback

These are the insights I thought would be interesting. I tried not to throw too many graphs, but sometimes it is helpful to understand better how MyFreeCams works.

If you have any ideas for a possible insight or graph, just let me know.

Fascinating, thank you for this incredibly useful blog post. Out of curiosity, could you include hours broadcasting online per month for top 100 and 20 over the past 6 months?

HazyKen

where do you store the data? and is it possible to provide a public dataset for others to query?

amanda

how much do they make in 2022? like more exact numbers for today to be top 20

Noelles

They have to make at least $16k in tokens

CASS

THIS IS SO INTERESTING (IM A MODEL – 7 MTHS INTO CAMMING)
THANK YOU FOR BREAKING IT ALL DOWN!
I AM SHARING THIS WITH OTHERS!

Jon

Hello, great post I was wondering if you are still researching data on the site and if you can have data for this month March 2024?
