From today’s Protocal newsletter:
There are three kinds of video chat, Zuckerberg said:
- One is video calling — “when you call someone and their phone or computer actually rings.” It’s good for quick, ad-hoc interactions.
- Two is video rooms, “where you create a link, send it out to people, and they can go ahead and join your video chat.” It’s better for coordinating large groups.
- And three is live video, “for a person or multiple people to broadcast what they’re doing, so that way people can watch them and interact with them in real time.” This has the fewest producers, but the most viewers.
