Perhaps you leave the recording in that tool's profile, or you upload it to You Tube or Facebook, or you could edit short snippets and share anywhere.This kind of repurposing could enable you to reach a new audience or provide better ways for your existing audience to engage with some of your content.Blab, Periscope, Meerkat, You Tube Live (with or without Google Hangouts on Air), and whatever other live-streaming tools come out all have something unique and might have some technology quirks.It could be video orientation, the proper way to connect your mic and camera, the flow and display of comments, or anything else.Before you jump into live-streaming, have some good reasons to do so. But live-streaming requires a whole new level of hosting skills you wouldn't normally exercising in offline recording.If you watch live-streams, you'll often see poor hosting skills—people talking over each other, derailing the conversation, not having any structure, and more. But live-streaming technologies can make this kind of experience worse due to half-duplexing (one person's audio cancels out someone else's), lack of physical sound direction (voices are mixed between left and right), and more.
You may not be able to control the audio quality of your live participants, but you should ensure that your audio is as good as it can be.
