Blab is the brainchild of Michael Birch, founder of the Social Networking site Bebo. A predecessor to Facebook and Google+, Bebo had significant success in the era of MySpace but floundered and failed after Facebook and Twitter began to rise to prominence. Michael Birch sold Bebo for hundreds of millions of dollars before it’s decline. He has now bought back into the business to totally revamp it with Blab.
Blab has got the marketing world all worked up in the last month or two. It is a Social Media, live streaming platform that is truly focussed on engagement rather than just simple broadcast. If you’re not familiar with Blab then check out our last two blogs on the subject here and here to get to grip with the basics.
Blab builds on the success of platforms like Periscope, Meerkat and Google Hangouts and goes further to provide a dynamic and interactive video platform. Being such a new platform many people are unsure how to start making the most of it. Whilst Blab is too new to conduct meaningful statistical analysis on, what we have done is put together our 10 top tips for using Blab from our experience so far.
