Stickam, the first live streaming network with over 9.5 million members, today announced it is launching a new fangating feature to help Stickam broadcasters increase their YouTube subscriptions. With this new tool, Stickam broadcasters can now restrict access to their live streams and live chat rooms to those whom subscribe to their YouTube channel. Stickam will present this new feature at this week's VidCon convention in Anaheim, CA.
“This feature was long-requested by our members, many of whom also maintain YouTube channels with significant numbers of subscribers. We wanted to give them a tool where they could actively promote and grow their YouTube fan base while streaming live on Stickam. Our social media capabilities continue to grow and remain unmatched in our market,” says Stickam’s Executive Director Hideki Kishioka.
Earlier this year Stickam launched the first-ever unified live chat system allowing users to join chats with their login credentials from Facebook, Twitter, Google+, MySpace and LinkedIn. Today’s announcement marks the inclusion of YouTube into their fangating capabilities. Now Stickam broadcasters can require viewers to Subscribe to their YouTube channel, Like their Facebook page or Follow them on Twitter before they watch the event and/or enter the chatroom.
