Top 10 Livestreamers To Follow In 2017

By Cheval John

The world of livestreaming has evolved into a major force for social media.

Meerkat, which was the first platform to kickoff the livestreaming revolution in 2015, disappeared earlier this year.

Vine was shutdown while Periscope officially merged into the Twitter platform.

Instagram joined the livestreaming community with Stories, which by the way copied Snapchat.

Facebook’s platform went further by creating live video in their stories platform, which allows anyone to be live for 60 minutes before the video disappears.

And Facebook themselves created their own live streaming platform that allows anyone of their 1 billion plus users to go live on their accounts.

My guess is that Facebook will continue to dominate social media and even be the place where live streamers will broadcast their shows.

Which leads to the unfortunate “demise” of blab when the executives decided to shut down their service and leave many people who were still on the platform scrambling for other platforms to broadcast their shows.

The ones who left blab before their initial shutdown spread out to different emerging platforms like, crowdcast and bluejeans network.

Note that bluejeans network was around for 7 years before they became a major force for live streamers.

Plus, the blue jeans network and had the technology that allows anyone to simulcast their shows to facebook live.

Who knows what livestreaming platform will be around in 2017.

In the same manner, many livestreamers have flourished this year.

While some have disappeared from the livestreaming world.

I have decided to create the second annual “Top 10 Livestreamers To Follow In 2017.”

The criteria for making the list above is that a livestreamers show have to broadcast their shows on a weekly basis and also deliver value that solves their audience’s problems.
