Livestreaming is when a video is broadcast and received in real-time over the internet. It’s said to be the closest online interaction to socialising offline, and the real-time interaction can feel personal and intimate, which may explain its popularity.
When users ‘go live’, their viewers can interact with their livestreams, by sending gifts, comments or reactions. Viewers may also receive notifications to encourage them to watch livestreams from people they follow.
