Younow.com is a not your average broadcasting website. There are plenty of sites online, that allow live streaming including multi streaming in one room. But none of them puts the user in the spot light. Sites like Tinychat and justin tv let users go live but most are never seen, or only able to capture a small audience because they are buried under 70 plus live streams.
I have become a loyal user of younow and from my experiance in running video chat sites, and being around the business of online streaming it’s by far the best. I can tell you right now that it can be highly addictive! Younow has all the right signs of becoming a major internet hot spot. A recent check on Alexa.com puts the sites Worldwide rank at 258,266 with a 70% increase over 3 months. Approximately 46% of its visitors are in the UK.
Lets get into some of the features found on younow. One of the best parts is the simple single click registration using Facebook connect. So if you like fast and easy sign up process then you will love the login via Facebook. It takes only 5 seconds to login, and 30 seconds to setup your broadcast settings before getting your place in the queue.
The site is powered by younow gold coins which you can earn in various ways. The quickest and best paying gig on you now is to go live and broadcast. Other ways to earn points is by interacting in the chat room with other users. When you broadcast not only can you earn points, but you can earn fans who will be notified every time you go live. Now lets get to one of many people’s favorite part. How about younow prizes and contests? Well that’s exactly right they give away prizes and sometimes even cash. Currently there is a competition where any broadcaster who gains 50 fans can win a t-shirt. Gain 1500 fans and you win the new iphone.
There are millions of websites online and competition is heavy, but most importantly saturated. So standing out takes serious work both in the interface and staff behind a project. The younow staff from my experiance is super talented and have more than enough energy to take this site to a National level. I’m sure there will be much more talk about younow.com in the future especially once super viral level is reached.
I want to say it’s been a long time since I have become a loyal user of any internet project besides the one’s I currently maintain on a daily bases. Having built and designed many successful projects i must agree this site is one hot site. So if your a broadcaster on any other site and have yet to broadcast your talent on younow you better take 10 minutes to see what all the buzz is about. Or you can just go and watch if your not much of a broadcaster and maybe cast a vote or two. Either way your in for a treat. If you do start using the site you can become a fan of me and check out my broadcasts HERE
