Today I’m excited to talk about a new platform called Blab. Now, there’s one platform coming out after the other, and it’s a little overwhelming to think that you have to touch upon all of these platforms, especially for your business or if you’re an entrepreneur and you’re just trying to make a name for yourself out there in online marketing. It’s tough.
What is Blab? Blab really combines Google Hangouts with the Periscope functions of being able to have commentary from viewers who are watching you live. It’s a live group video chat.
A little history. It was founded by the creators of Bebo, which was like this original social media platform even before Facebook. They founded it and then it was bought by AOL and then they bought it back for like a billion dollars and then they grew it into this platform that we know it as today. Will not be there tomorrow the same as it is now. It’s still in a beta version, They’re testing it out. They’re really doing a great job of kind of crowd sourcing the ideas for what people really want out of this platform so they can mold it into what we all want it to be. Okay, so that’s a little bit of the history of it.
