Blabbing for Britain using #Blab Hints, Tips and Questions Answered by Steven and Jon [Updated 02 February]


Every Thursday Jon Upton and Steven Healey host Video shows on Blab. We have both hosted Blabs and are enthusiastic Blabistas .

Each show features an introduction to Blab and the latest features .

The Aim

To show you how you can use Blab in your business and your networking activities.

Our goal is to help you to host your own Blab and take part live in other peoples Blabs.

The atmosphere will be  informal and you will discover how easy to use and useful Blab is .

What is Blab ?

Blab is a public video conference with up to four participants live streaming . The system integrates with Twitter and it has its own comments system for viewers to interact and ask questions which the video panel can answer.

Blab requires only a video camera , a microphone and earphones.  There is nothing to download for hosts or viewers . It works on Windows , Mac .there is an Iphone app and on Android it works in your browser

And while there are already group video chats services like Google Hangouts and Skype’s group video call feature, what makes Blab attractive is its focus on social networking and bringing the Twitter community closer together through video. It’s also (at least so far) a lot easier to use than the aforementioned services. Source Mashable

Show Formats

There are many different ways to use Blab. We’ve created a platform, and our users guide the content. Sometimes it’s tricky to know which type of format fits your Blab, so I’ve mapped out some ideas.

Brittany of Blab has shared typical formats here
