What we're about
The most powerful voice in social media is live, so shouldn't you be? Whether you want to build your brand or work with brands, this is the place for you.
This group was created for businesses, bloggers, and public speakers interested in live streaming video, but, when the founder stepped down, it was relaunched for anyone interested in the Business of Live. Whether it's on Facebook Live, Periscope, YouTube, Twitch, or any other live or social platform, social broadcasting provides the ability to reach, connect, and engage with consumers like never before.
Personal live streamers, publishers, brands, and agencies alike are welcome to join this community, network, and learn a trick or two about this exciting, new medium. Even if you've never gone live, but you're interested in the possibilities, stick around and we'll catch you up to real-time.
We hope to share everything we've learned about live streaming video, including the ins-and-outs of the platforms, the gear, best practices, and how you can use social broadcasting to achieve your goals.
Whether you stream on Facebook Live, Periscope, YouTube, Twitch, YouNow, Live.ly, or any other platform, join us to share tips and tricks of the trade with other live streaming enthusiasts and professionals. Newbies who are curious about the medium are welcome!
There will be plenty of time to meet, mingle, and network, but we hope to give everyone the spotlight and a chance to talk about what you're doing with live video. From time to time, we will welcome guest presenters who can give us new insights into platforms, content, audiences, and gear.
We'll be holding meet ups at the Al Roker Entertainment (http://www.alroker.com/) office in Midtown Manhattan, home of Roker Labs (http://www.rokerlabs.com) and Roker Media (http://www.rokermedia.live/), where we produce both television and live streaming programming.
