Apps for Live-streaming Video

Live-streaming video is latest frontier of social media. Established social networks (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) have their own apps, while first-movers in the space (e.g., Meerkat) are busily trying to differentiate themselves.


Live-stream content ranges from impromptu video blogging to produced efforts by industry veterans. For small businesses, live-streaming video may be a helpful, new way to engage an audience and establish a brand with little or no cost.

Here is a list of live-streaming video apps. There are fun, live-streaming apps to connect with and update followers, and there are live-video platforms with advanced production and lead-generation tools. Many of these apps are free.
