ABOUT

What is Blab?

Blab is a livestreaming platform that enables a public video chat among four participants at a time. If you are familiar with the likes of Periscope, Meerkat and Google Hangouts, it basically combines all three.

Viewers come in to watch the livestream and they can participate by leaving comments on the left hand side of the desktop application or below on the mobile version.

If one of the four seats is open, a viewer can easily request to join and it’s up to the host to accept them into the livestream.

Where did this Blab thing come from?

Blab is owned by Bebo which was one of the original social media platforms even before Facebook arrived on the scene. In 2008, Bebo founder Michael Birch sold the social media platform to AOL for $850million after which, it lost a huge number of users and faded away. In 2013, Michael and his wife Xochi bought it back for $1 billion with huge plans to reinvent the site. Welcome Blab.

Blab was just launched in April and it’s still very much in Beta. Right now, you can access the app via desktop by visiting Blab.im or if you have an iPhone/iPad, you can visit Blab.im/ios and download the test mobile application.

On August 10th, CTO Fruqan Rydhan (@FurqanR) did reveal (in a Blab) a mobile app has been submitted to Apple and once reviewed/accepted, you will be able to download this from the Apple Store. Android devices will follow shortly.

Shaan Puri, CEO of Blab (@ShaanVP) followed that up in another Blab by explaining the platform is intended to be truly mobile. Anytime. Any place. Anywhere.

So what’s so great about Blab?

The Conversation Aspect

At the beginning of this year, Social Media as an industry was in a really funny place. We seen a huge growth in video and this has really taken it to the next level by offering two-four way public video interactions.

This year, we also seen people quickly shut down and switch from the enormous noise pollution on the various social media platforms. Scheduled posts and the lack of engagement really took the ‘social’ aspect out of social media.

Blab has brought the social interaction back. People are interacting with one another; having deep and meaningful conversations in the present moment. Instead of the surface conversations that go along the lines of ‘thanks for the retweet’ and ‘hope you’re having a great day’, people are actually getting to know each other. Relationships are being built and as far as know, like, trust factor, I don’t think there’s any platform that can compete. It really is the closest thing to face to face interactions in an online setting. The fact people can jump in and out of the livestream conversation just adds to that.

What Is Periscope? What You Need To Know About Twitter’s New App

Periscope is the new video streaming platform that is taking the social media world by storm.

Social media is a fickle beast. Already, the likes of Bebo, MSN messenger and Myspace exist only in our web history and with thousands of social networking apps out there, we simply can’t get excited about every one. But with Persicope it’s a bit different – we have a feeling this one is here to stay.

The video streaming platform is owned by Twitter and has only been running for three months. In that time it has gained over two million users and will soon be jostling for airtime alongside your much loved Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat accounts. So what’s it all about? Here’s everything you need to know about Periscope…

What is Periscope? And what does it do?

Periscope is a “live video streaming platform”, which basically means you can transmit a live recording of yourself to your Persicope and Twitter followers. Imagine Skyping someone, but instead of video calling a single person, you’re instead linked up to the whole community. Not only that, whoever’s watching you can comment and ask questions. These show up on your screen whilst broadcasting making it easy to answer and interact.

That sounds just like a webchat or Google Hangout…

It basically is. The big difference though is that it’s designed as a mobile app, so people use it frequently and off-the-cuff when they are out and about. Also, because Periscope is owned by Twitter, it automatically links up with your Twitter account. This means when you do a live transmission it appears on your Twitter newsfeed making it easier to build up followers from the word go.

Ok, give me an example of some of the videos that I might find on there.

We mean it when we say it could be anything. From someone sightseeing in Rome to a pedestrian filming a protest in New York. The Paris Opera Ballet has filmed rehearsals for its upcoming show and Hilary Clinton streamed her first presidential campaign rally. People show you the contents of their fridge. Musicians talk through their latest album, concertgoers record live gigs. Davina McCall shows herself getting ready for the TV BAFTAs, Phillip Schofield shows us around The Cube TV studio, Ellen Degeneres lets you in on an ideas meeting. It can be mundane, funny, anecdotal, insightful and breaking news. The one common link though is that it is interactive, as viewers comment and the broadcaster replies back, making it a two-way conversation.

So how do I know when to tune in?

You get a notification anytime the people you’re following do a live transmission. Also you can re-watch any video from your followers for 24 hours after the live broadcast. After that they disappear and no one, not even if it’s yours, can watch it back. You can also click through to the ‘World Map’ tab which shows you where all the live broadcasts are taking place at that moment. This is where you find some weird and wonderful stuff as you eavesdrop into people’s lives from around the globe.

Two words: Chat Roulette. Will I will be disturbed by some of things that I might see?

Not that we’ve found. Persicope say that they have a team checking so things never get sordid, but, they don’t seem to have their work cut out. For whatever reason, the community using Periscope makes sure things are kept clean and appropriate – a bit like the way you wouldn’t find pornographic images on Instagram.

I’m not sure if I would want to go on camera myself…

The first time that we did a live broadcast we felt a bit self conscious, but you quickly get used to it and the more you watch other videos the more realise how unstructured they can be. You can be silent, answer questions, talk about what you’re up to, just show a view or a scene. Also, because it’s so interactive, you weirdly get a kick out of people ‘Liking’ your video and asking you questions when you’re live. Just like posting on Facebook or tweeting you quickly get over your initial reservations.

Where has Persicope got the potential to go?

It could be game-changer for how news is reported. From a protester capturing the action as it happens in Ukraine, to live streaming the moment Prince William and Kate step out with Princess Charlotte, anyone can instantly broadcast breaking news. Not only that, you can create private broadcasts by selecting the people you’d like to stream to. Imagine if your friend was getting married and you set up a broadcast for the friends and family that couldn’t be there. A word of warning, though, make sure you don’t record any copyrighted material. The app landed in hot water when people streamed the fifth season premiere of Game of Thrones and the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.

Are there other similar apps?

Yes there are. At SXSW everyone was very excited about Meerkat, which does exactly the same thing and launched before Periscope. In response Twitter quickly bought up Periscope for a reported $100 million in March.
