Toronto,ON, March 2020 – Many would call the current state of the world chaotic, unstable, unpredictable, and in turmoil. People are overbuying for no good reason and lining up for cheap gasoline when there is nowhere to go.
In times of uncertainty and stress, one thing we’re doing right is social distancing. We are fighting this virus together, but apart. With this solitude however, we are enlightened with the realization that more than ever we need each other’s support, friendship, and human interaction. This is why Facebook reported a 70%increase in video chat messages, because humans love to connect, and humans need to connect.
Video messaging is a great way to catch up and interact with our loved ones, but live streaming is a great way to interact with the rest of us. We’re all in the same boat, and many of us want to hear your story… how you are coping with the situation, and why you are not overstocking on toilet paper. What are you doing in your spare time? How are you staying connected? What kind of games are you playing? What’s your routine like? Do you feel closer to your family or do you need your space?
When we see someone speaking about their life, there are so many facets to relate to, and when we hear about their pain, sorrow, happiness, or triumph, we can ultimately empathize with the individual. This is how connection is built, by turning our globalized society into a small community, and turning our distance into closeness.
Live streaming is the most genuine form of online communication, because it is live, raw, and unedited. There’s an innate reason why some people love to tune into the 6 o’clock news on television and hear what’s going on in the world and listen to live stories, it’s because when something is live we feel like we’re a part of the story. Isn’t that why we watch the NBA or NHL and roar the room when our team scores? But you probably wouldn’t have the same reaction if you were watching a recorded video. People are naturally drawn to live video because it makes us feel included and that we are part of a greater event. What if we can evoke this emotion 24 hours a day?
