||-there are usually 800 to 1200 models online at any given time, and another similar amount offline. There are many, many very attractive girls here! Every body type, nationality, porn niche, and personality type can be found here.
-I hope the site administrators dont get mad at me for saying it, but it is easy to enjoy most of what this site has to offer without spending a dime! You simply go to the site and enter any model's chat room as a guest. You can also register as a "basic" by giving them your contact info (name and email). Guests and basics cannot join group shows or do privates, but many models do strip shows and masturbation shows in their public chat rooms once paying members have tipped the requested amount.
-for paying members a video is made of all private chats you do, and kept indefinitely in your archive
-you can add a large number of models to your favorites list, and get notified by email whenever they log on
-private messaging/emails to models
||-MFC is more expensive than most webcam sites ($5 a minute for private chats if you buy 900 tokens at a time). Some models do offline Skpe shows for online tips that work out to a cheaper rate than this.
-one of my biggest gripes is the lack of a user comment section for private chats. You can rate the private, and send a comment to the model, but you can't make a comment that can be read by the general membership. You can leave a comment on her profile page, but the vast majority of those are not comments about private chats.
-As others have noted, you can get addicted to webcam sites, and MFC is no exception. In addition to blowing a lot of money, you can also waste a LOT of time here. If you're low on self discipline, you're probably better off never visiting the site.
-the spot a model gets on the homepage is determined by her cam score (which is essentially based on how much money she makes). At times this seems unfair-maybe they could come up with something different
||MFC and Streamate are my two favorite webcam sites, and I meant to write this reveiw right after I did my review of Streamate, but I ran out of time. Both sites have good and bad points.
One thing about MFC that is different from other webcam sites is how the membership interacts with the models. Its a little difficult to explain, but the end result is that you can get to know a model better at MFC than probably any other site. The chat room has a list of all premium and basic members on the right, a chat display in the middle, and the model's video feed on the left. The more popular rooms will often have an active ongoing discussion between the members and model that can include anything as the topic (how her day is going, what type of sex she likes best, etc). If you go into a models chat room on a regular basis, over time you will learn a lot about her. In addition to this, there is a private messaging system, so you can talk one on one with a model if you have anything to discuss with her that you don't want the general membership to see (like what you would like her to do in a private chat). Most models do some type of countdown show, where they will do a strip show and/or masturbate after a certain number of tokens have been tipped by everyone in the room. This usually results in a lot of time for the members to interact with the model. This along with the combination of active public chat and private messaging results in a better interaction with the models than any other webcam site I've been to. Again, its a little hard to explain, but MFC definitely does this well.
A few things are worth noting for new members or persons who have never been to a webcam site before.
First, many models work multiple webcam sites. If you see a girl typing for no apparent reason, she may be interacting on another site. So there will be times when you type a comment in the chat room and the model doesn't immediately respond. It doesn't mean she's being rude. Other sites have their own unique sounds that you may learn to recognize if her sound is on(MFC has a distinctive "chime" sound when the model gets a tip).
Second, video quality will vary with the models equipment. In general, it's still not that good, and no where near true HD quality. MFC did recently add a full screen video option, but if a model is streaming at VGA quality, it will be pixelated. This is one of the more disappointing things about webcam sites, but obviously will get better over time.
Third, there are a lot of European girls here, and not all of them read and speak good English. If you have specific requests for a private chat, make sure she understands what you want before you the click the button.
Fourth, there are a few models on every site who are "time wasters" in their private chats. They will stall for time by typing questions, dancing, and generally not getting naked and doing what you want them to do. When I encounter this, I end the chat very quickly, but not before I let them why.
Finally, you really need to set yourself a monthly budget if you are going to use these sites. It is very easy to blow a lot of money. You have to ask yourself what you are looking for at a webcam site that you can't get from a regular porn site. If you don't have a good answer, then stay away from them if you don't have self discipline. I did what a lot of people probably do, initially spent a lot more money than I should have, before settling down to spending very little.
MFC prides itself on paying the models more than any other webcam site (supposedly 50% of the tips versus 25% to 30% at other sites). That's all fine and good, but I wonder if they do anything to help new models learn the ropes if you will. I've seen quite a few new models who are very attractive and you would think should do well, but they end up doing poorly, having their cam score fall like a rock, and dropping down to page 2, where very few members go (btw check it on a regular basis--there are some really hot girls there too). They may have a FAQ for new models, but I've seen too many new models make common errors that result in their cam score dropping. Things like not showing their face on their video feed, setting a token target for a strip show that is way too high, wearing too much or otherwise not showing enough of their body to get members so horny that they can't resist taking them private, etc. Having just said that, I guess I would be remiss if I didn't call out all of the assinine members who type rude comments, and the never ending crowd of freeloaders who never tip the models. I really feel bad sometimes for some of these girls. They put up with a lot of BS on a daily basis, and everyone's always wanting a free show. So guys, be nice to the girls, and do tip them if you can.
Bottom line, you can have a LOT of fun at MFC (and other webcam sites), but be careful with your wallet.
