Live streaming refers to the broadcasting of live video and audio content over the internet, in real time.
How does live streaming work?
Live streaming allows individuals and organizations to share live events, performances, discussions, and other types of content with a remote audience, who can watch and participate in real time.
It can be done through a variety of platforms and tools, ranging from social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter, to dedicated streaming services like Twitch and YouTube Live. Some platforms also offer interactive features like live chat and Q&A sessions, allowing viewers to engage with the content creator or presenter.
Live streaming has become increasingly popular in recent years, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to the cancellation or postponement of many in-person events.
