If Meerkat and reddit had a baby... Smart move. Very curious to see how this unfolds and the types of people that participate. So far Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Serena Williams, Luke Bryan, Ricardo Kaka, Ashley Tisdale, Lester Holt, Martha Stewart, and Michael Bublé are lined up. Who would you love to see?

@rrhoover I never feel like it's about seeing celebrities. I want celebrities to SEE ME. I have the same personal goals as any brand: I want awareness and affinity if I can get it. I want celebs to know I exist, and if possible, affirm something about me or agree with me or validate me in any small way. To me, this "innovation" works in reverse. A better use of Lester's time is to take short video calls with fans.

@nrose @rrhoover this is a really interesting insight. I think @ryanleslie is approaching it more like you're suggesting and it's working well. If celebrities want to create lifelong fans/customers they MUST acknowledge their fans existence, dreams, hopes, fears...

@jackzerby agreed. @ryanleslie's DMM Superphone platform is really interesting. SMS is underrated, imo.

I'm curious why they only seem to target public figures right now. I would love for my live streams to show up in my friend's Facebook newsfeed.

I feel most people use Facebook to see friends and "check in" not sure if I am interested in hanging out to watch celebs talk about stuff, feel like a separate platform. Surprised Facebook did not jump on the live video bandwagon sooner, they usually copy something working well, then the FB copy dies a few months later lol. but hey looks cool no the less.
