Skype is one of the oldest, and probably the most well-known, video chat apps out there.
Skype allows its 299 million users to video chat, voice chat, and instant messaging each other.
You Now might be the biggest site you've never heard of. The live-stream broadcasting (aka live-casting) site-slash-app, lets users perform for viewers all over the world, via the cameras on their computers, tablets and smartphones.
Whether you're a singer looking to get discovered, are lonely and bored, or you simply love an audience, You Now brings those who want to be watched together with those willing to watch them.
That’s probably the best thing about Skype – the fact that so many people already have it.
Take for instance the British 14-year-old streaming in the #truthordare section who, on a recent evening, earnestly replied to a commenter who suggested girls can't make their elbows meet in front of their chests by trying over and over again to do just that, innocently pressing her breasts together each time.
And it's not just a source of entertainment and support, it's also a revenue generator.
Fans can purchase points to tip their favorite performers, who split the profits with You Now.
In a way, it’s a hybrid between a social discovery app and video chat app, which is pretty cool.
Live streaming apps let you broadcast your live stream and tune in to what others are broadcasting all over the world.
