Pirate Broadcasting | Youtube Poetry

For this pirate broadcasting/ micro project, I decided to live stream a youtube video playlist “Youtube Poety”.

This is the next best youtube video playlist other than “The Most Important Videos”.

I tried on both Facebook Live and Instagram Live platform to see the potential responses from people that are online and bothered to watch my entertainment I prepared for them.

Facebook live final take:

Test run:

I tried it on Facebook Live. I had some technical difficulties during my first take but I did not take it down. Some how the likes and comments went this take instead of the later one which I did the proper take. I feel it somehow reflects on the internet environment that we are in now. Sometimes casual contents are the ones that went viral instead of contents that are carefully planned. It is hard to predict what the internet wants at the end of the day.

And yes someone shared my life feed as well. Ha ha.

Instagram Live final take:

Test run:

Next, I tried Instagram Live for another round to see the response. Somehow I feel users are more responsive on Instagram as compared to Facebook. One of the main reasons I feel is because Instagram is meant for videos and photos sharing and Facebook has these features but other features as well.

Other features such as the icons of users popping up on the screen when they tune in to your feed makes you feel that you are not alone and talking to yourself. There are also features such as an icon where you can send “wave” to your viewers for instant interactions. These features creates a friendly online environment for people to share and watch online content.

Anyway talking about funny videos, you guys should watch this as well:
