Great app could be improved

I’ve gone live on this app several years ago and recently got back into it. I love this app you can meet really cool people but there are just a couple things I would like to make you aware of. First thing I really wish I could use my back camera whilst live-streaming. I am only able to use my front camera and I can’t zoom in or anything. I really want to see the ability to switch & use a phones back camera to livestream as it would make my life so much easier. The second is I wish the chat was monitored a little more. I got this a lot when I was younger but even now there are a lot of creeps who get really weird in the chat as well as guys who will trick someone into guesting them but then reveal themselves inappropriately or naked. As of right now the only thing you can really do is block or report the person (which doesn’t seem to help), however if I were in charge of making these changes, I would make certain keywords highlight an account & put them on a three-strike probation. I also feel that the problem accounts’ emails/numbers could be banned from creating new accounts if they continue. I feel that this could help the app be safer and less 18+. Thank you for your time, I hope to see these improvements in the future.

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.

Start your own Community

Great place to meet new and interesting people from all over the world! You can make fans but even more, you can make life long friends! Obviously be discerning when you make friends and decide to eventually meet up. I have met several prominent names (in my opinion) from YouNow and it was a great experience.

As a creator I have to say YouNow supports the partners. They are very pro active when it comes to promoting an event and getting the rest of the community involved. The contests are pretty cool and partners are able to hook fans up with subscriptions so they can see what it’s like to have exclusive content along with the partners brand in sticker form.

Not only that but for me, being a rapper, jeweler, film maker, YouNow has always backed me and supported my own community #DeezyTribe and for that I have to say I’m pretty great full for real!

Thanks Half Deezy! This was a thorough review and we are glad you are having such a good experience on the app! You are definitely a renaissance broadcaster :)
