An amazing platform with potential

I discovered younow shortly after the blogTV service was purchased so I have been very active and use the platform on a daily basis. The staff is pretty intelligent and quick to handle problems there’s always going to be glitches here and there but they’re not that detrimental. I like that the CEO interacts with the users as well to get real time feedback. I feel that you know is family friendly and a good safe place most of the time for people of all ages to collaborate together but there have been issues that I have become aware of lately where you have older men talking to much much younger women below the age of 16 and with making reports I would never get it resolved which is the reason for only four stars. All in all I think this platform has the ability to scale quite massively I could make people a few dollars on the side if that’s your thing. You know it’s such an instrumental tool for life I almost forgot to add this part to my review but I did in fact meet my wife on YouNow almost 4 years ago and we’re happily married now and we have a 14-month-old son all thanks to this wonderful creation of you now.

Amazing streaming platform

You can meet so many people on here, yes there’s some people that aren’t nice but the majority of people on here are nice. This is one of the best streaming platforms I have ever used and I would use it any day over Twitch. I recommend this to anyone that just likes chatting with viewers, or likes playing video games on stream but also paying attention to the people that come in. I always like to stream and talk about random stuff like what’s going on I’m the world and sometimes I talk about what goes on in my life. I like how you can go under a tag too so that people know exactly what’s going on in the stream before going into it. I love meeting new people on there and just starting conversations because there’s a lot of people on there that are nice. In general I love this app and I will continue to use it for as long as it’s still up which will hopefully be a long time!

YouNow is a good app to stream on but I have a small problem… the moderators or whoever just picks and choose who they want to remove from streams and ban them without any specific reasons why they got removed or banned from the app, and I think it’s just stupid that they ban people for no reason and without reasons why they did it…I just saw someone get banned from the moderator while they were guesting with one of my best friends on the app the one that was guesting didn’t do anything wrong or say anything wrong she was just banned, and then they kept removing another friend from the guesting as well and he didn’t do anything wrong at all… I had a friend who’s account got banned at 3 in the morning after he bought bars and they only said he violated community guidelines but they didn’t say which ones tho and I’m wasn’t the only one trying to email younow for him trying to see why he also got banned but all that younow said was “we can’t tell you their Information and why they got banned, please have the account holder reach out to us” but he did reach out to them multiple times and he either never got a response or it was closed immediately and he was thinking about going to the headquarters and having an issue with them…
