Parents' Ultimate Guide to Livestreaming

Video clips? That's old school. Today, it's all about livestreaming -- capturing or watching video of an event as it's happening.To get more news about 39bet-kết quả bóng đá-kết quả xổ số miền bắc-kèo bóng đá -soi cầu bóng đá-đặt cược, you can visit official website.

Kids love livestreaming because it fully conveys the thrill of a moment, such as skateboarders doing tricks at the park or a gamer playing Fortnite. Livestreaming offers unscripted, authentic, and spontaneous action -- and it's the closest thing to hanging out in person. Also, because livestreaming lets viewers and broadcasters interact in real time, it makes a virtual experience personal and intimate.
While livestreaming taps into teens' natural desire to connect, relate, and belong, there are some questionable motivations and potential risks, such as chasing fame, oversharing, and even breaking the law in pursuit of the most awesome video, that parents need to be aware of and help kids manage. The technology has been used to stream suicides and crimes, so it's very possible to see horrifying things because live video is so difficult to moderate.

While most kids livestream casually -- and privately -- with friends, many apps offer the option to "go live." In other words, all it takes is one tap to broadcast yourself live on the internet. However, livestreaming can be used safely with parents' guidance, so it's important to be aware of how it works, how your kids use it, and what could go wrong -- whether kids turn the camera on themselves, view others' streams, or wind up as an "extra" on someone else's feed.
What is livestreaming?

Livestreaming is a technology that lets you watch, create, and share video in real time. It's similar to a live TV broadcast, except it's done with a phone and an app instead of a camera and microphone. And instead of a pre-scouted, controlled location, livestreams tend to happen wherever kids are: a bedroom, a concert, even classrooms. Livestreaming also borrows from the world of video chat. FaceTime and the popular group-chatting app ooVoo, for example, enable livestreaming.

Livestreams can be public or private. While some internet-famous folks livestream on public channels, most tweens and teens livestream fun stuff -- like their cat walking from room to room -- just for the people who follow them on social media. (Depending on the platform, a livestream that isn't viewed at the time it's uploaded is available as a recording for a certain amount of time.)

Lots of apps that are popular with tweens and teens, including TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram, offer the ability to livestream as one feature among many. Users can choose to go live as easily as they can upload photos and status updates.

Apps such as Twitch and YouTube provide a platform for more serious internet creators who livestream for a dedicated audience (and to make money). Hosts can broadcast live and either tell their followers to tune in at a specific time for a live show or record it to be watched by fans later. Let's Play videos -- where gamers broadcast themselves playing video games -- constitute one of the most popular livestreaming categories, with over 600 million total viewers in 2017 and 25,000 streamers on Twitch alone. Other popular livestreams include: musical performances by acts both famous and not; news and interviews from both professional and amateur sources; sports events; and even people who record their daily lives for avid fans.

A common element of all livestreams is that they are interactive. During a livestream, the audience can comment and the host can respond. And, of course, livestreams can get "liked" -- or not -- by friends. Some livestreaming platforms allow viewers to send the host money, gifts, and other expressions of appreciation.
