On #LivestreamStars with Ross Brand, Tim McDonald talked about the importance of having real conversations on livestream platforms. He said the fact that so many people are seeking to build their personal brand means that they are often more interested in standing out than in connecting and find out through conversation how to help each other. Tim believes the ability to livestream two-way conversations on mobile apps will greatly increase the popularity and utility of live video.
