Stop streaming while driving Mitch Jackson

Stop Streaming While Driving

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Monday, April 30th, 2018.

In Real Life or IRL live streaming too often means streaming while driving. And this is a trend that can have horrible consequences.

A YouTuber was involved in a serious car accident recently while distracted by reading comments on his phone. He failed to see the stop sign or notice the truck approaching him. He was reported to be in moderate to serious condition after being hospitalized with blunt force trauma and airlifted from the scene, according to CBS Philly & CNN Wire Services. The YouTuber said he was streaming to make the 40-minute drive less boring.

This follows a near-incident in which a popular and controversial YouTube IRL vlogger just missed causing an accident while driving and live streaming with other IRL streamers in his car.

Streaming Attorney Mitch Jackson has been a leader in raising awareness about distracted driving.

As a Livestream Universe guest in May 2017, Mitch drew a sharp line in the sand when it comes to streaming while driving.

Mitch and his son Garrett Jackson run the Stop Distracted Driving Facebook group.

On Today’s viewing schedule:

At 3pm ET, Owen Video hosts BeLive Weekly on the BeLive TV Facebook page.

At 9pm ET, it’s “Ask Mike Murphy.” Bring your tech and podcasting questions to the Mike Murphy LLC Facebook page.

Brian Fanzo: Your Brand Needs Twitter in 2018

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Tuesday, April 24th, 2018. 

If you’re a live streamer who primarily uses Facebook, Instagram or YouTube to go live, what role does Twitter play in your social media activities?

While some people are spending less time on the platform and others primarily automating their involvement, Brian Fanzo says the real-time conversations on Twitter shouldn’t be overlooked by entrepreneurs and brands.

Twitter also helps you reach people outside your network.

You can hear Brian’s entire discussion of Twitter on iTunes as Episode 71 of the #FOMOFanz podcast.

Madalyn Sklar also makes Twitter and live streaming important elements of her social media outreach. Following her #TwitterSmarter and #SocialROI chats, Madalyn continues the conversation on Facebook Live. Today, she’ll be a guest on Magnet Marketers with Jessika Phillips and Mike Gingerich at 4pm ET on the Magnet Marketers Facebook page. The topic: “Twitter tools to amp your online game.”

The Twitter theme continues tonight as Madalyn joins us for Best of BeLive with Ross and Rachel. We go LIVE on the BeLive.tv Facebook Page at 8pm ET.

Before that, Rachel Moore joins Todd.Live to talk about challenges with live video in 2018. The show is called Entrepreneur Live Video and it’s at 3pm ET. on Facebook Live on the Todd.Live Facebook page as well as on YouTube and Periscope/Twitter.
