With Mark Vaughn claiming VaughnLive alone is costing him around $25k a month (lol) and him being desperate for money to survive, is the future of Social Broadcasting Blab?
Blab is a newish site on the scene. It’s like a mix of Periscope and Battlecam, but what makes this site unique to VL and others, is they operate on a p2p style system.
For those of you who are not familiar with p2p, the way this works, compared to say Vaughnlive, is the busier it gets, the better the quality of the casts are. Whereas the usual casting sites will slow right down or even crash under heavy traffic, Blab will become better than ever. And the best part is, you don’t need dozens of servers like Mark Vaughn (allegedly) does.
Lets compare Blab’s features and VL’s. Also remember Blab is free 🙂
Something that Mark has never been able to work out how to do. Blab has 4 windows for people to join the host on cam, with good quality pictures.
Another of Marks ‘coming soon’ but never arrives, is the much needed phone app for the site. Blab already has an iOS app and is expected to release an Android app very soon.
No $15 a month with Blab just to store your previous cast for a few days. Blab even lets you give the viewer a chance to watch the last show by their favourite caster, just by clicking a start button, cool eh?
Ability To Pre-Schedule Your Cast:
This is another great addition. It lets you literally pre-book your next cast, just by entering a chosen date and time. This then places you in the ‘upcoming section’ so anybody who visits Blab, can check when you are next due to go live. No more posting links all over Facebook, Twitter etc just to let your followers know when you will cast next.
Only The Host Can Ban:
No more Nazi style Moderators with Blab. Only the host can kick/ban you, so you can relax a lot more, without worrying if a Mod doesn’t like you.
There are lots of other features that you can use over there, and they don’t come in and shuffle you, they don’t Police rooms, and you can say pretty much whatever you like, as long as it’s not promoting anything like Terrorism etc.
Here’s a clip from us joining FoxmanShawn in one of his Blab’s. This is classic Foxman, when joined by a French attractive lady , he begins to talk with a French accent.
What follows was hilarious:
