YouNow Changed My Life
My name is Brendan Bagwell, and I started YouNow on January 19th, 2015. Since that date, I’ve broadcasted practically every day, become a partner with YouNow, and been able to make this my full-time occupation. The other apps are fine, but none have the sense of genuine community and friendship that YouNow has. Yes there’s some drama between broadcasters, but that’s wha happens when you have a community that knows one another as well as YouNow’s does. Every day I look forward to going live and telling a story, influencing someone new in a positive way, or making someone laugh who’s had a bad day. I’ve made lifelong friends, found love, and found success, all through this app. And I couldn’t thank YouNow enough for changing my life for the better!

Hi Brendan! We are so happy to hear about your experience with the platform! :) Thank you for sharing your story, and for being a part of the YouNow community!
We got banned for NO reason!!!!!!!!!😡😡😡
So when I first got this app my friend and I loved it!! We were always going live and having lots of fun. Also we definitely obeyed the rules and blocked any weird people asking for private information or asking to do weird things. So I was definitely following the rules. And when I watched other people go live I didn’t spam or ask for private information or tell them to do things that are you know weird. So I absolutely should have never gotten banned!!!! Anywho this is when I realized I couldn’t go live. About 3 weeks ago my friend and I were bored and decided to go on YOUNOW but when we tried to go live it said we got suspended for being “underage” even though we’re both not underage we’re actually BOTH over 13yrs old!!! So I just don’t get why we got suspended?? And then we tried going back on today and it said we got EXPELLED FOR BEING UNDERAGE!!!!! And I was like HOLD UP last time it said we were SUSPENDED NOT EXPELLED ALSO WHEN WE WERE SUSPENDED WE NEVER GOT UNSUSPENDED!! So I’m really really really mad and would love to go live again!! Oh I forgot to mention we also didn’t curse/swear.

READ THIS BEFORE DOWNLOADING!!!
I downloaded this app when I was around the age of 12 because of boredom and low self esteem. As soon as I joined chats filled the que with quotes about how I was “hot” “looked like a model” and “beautiful” to 12 year old me these all seemed like very flattering things. But not when they are coming from grown men peering into my bedroom and seeing my life through a camera. The adults on here are very slick they try to earn broadcasters affection by doing things like giving “likes” and becoming a fan (these are all things that can give your broadcast popularity) but the problem with it is majority of the young people aren’t here aren’t broadcasting with the intent to be partnered with younow. They are broadcasting because they like the attention they get from onlookers. Please take my advice and do NOT download this app looking back in retrospect at age 14 there are MUCH better ways to spend your time and this app will only give a negative outcome in the end. Just look up the story of Amanda Todd if you don’t believe me. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this app and stay safe 💗
