What We Like
YouNow is an exciting development that essentially takes the best parts of YouTube and social networking sites to create an instant and fun way to communicate. There are already thousands of users on YouNow meaning you have a potentially massive audience to broadcast to or a massive number of broadcasts to discover yourself.
What We Don’t Like
One feature that YouNow is missing is the ability to re-watch a broadcast once it has finished. This is something that would be hugely useful and something that we ear is in the pipeline for the future.
If you love watching YouTube videos of people singing, dancing, reviewing products, or giving advice, you will love YouNow. The site lets you instantly watch thousands of live broadcasts, make new friends, and discover amazing people. You can broadcast yourself and gain a whole new following, maybe even becoming a cult hero! It is free to use and certainly worth checking out.
