Meerkat Accepts Fate, Ditches Live Streaming Model

Posted by @DanHinmon, Mar 7, 2016

Meerkat has bowed under the weight of Periscope and, more recently, Facebook Live Video. In a statement, company CEO Ben Rubin confirmed the company will be shifting its focus and resources away from livestreaming and toward a new business model: it is transforming into a video social network where ‘everybody is always live.’

Thanks to @westr for pointing us to this story.

Have you been using Meerkat?

I’ve never used it, and it’s kind of a relief to know it’s no longer an option. Makes things simpler. Between Facebook video and Periscope, which do you prefer?
