What are livestreaming and video apps?
Livestreaming is broadcasting to an audience in ‘real’ time. The audience can leave comments, or give likes and kudos to the person streaming. Some platforms let several people livestream at the same time.
There are livestreaming apps like Twitch and Yubo, but young people can livestream on other social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram. Many young people also post pre-recorded videos on video apps like YouTube, TikTok and Vimeo, or video chat in groups or one-to-one, using apps like WhatsApp.
The NSPCC has produced information on how to help your child keep safe when livestreaming.
