Live video broadcasting app Hang w/ will now be sharing a portion of the advertising revenue generated from its recently implemented ad delivery system with the content creators on its service.
Hang w/ is a live streaming video platform that allows anyone with an iPhone, iPad or Android device to broadcast live video – and it enables viewers to watch and engage via live chat from their iPhone, iPad, Android Device or via the web. Users follow other users who interest them, and the system sends a notification every time someone in a user’s “following” network goes live.
“We believe Hang w/ marks the beginning of a new era in social media,” said Andrew Maltin, CEO. “For too long, the creators of content have helped social technology platforms earn billion dollar valuations – while receiving nothing in exchange. Hang w/ aims to shift that balance so the individual people creating content and driving growth can share in the profits.”
You will need to be a U.S. citizen, 18 years of age or older, to be able to share in the advertising revenue from your content. However, Hang w/ is working on rolling out monetization for users in Europe and other markets.
Hang w/ can be downloaded FREE for the iPhone in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
