YouNow New Feature: Channel Discovery
Finding exciting broadcasts, discovering new channels, and locating your friends on YouNow just got a whole lot easier. Check out our brand new Channel Discovery Interface!
Our new interface takes a personalized and organized approach to displaying the channels which are best suited for you.
Channel Discovery: Viewing
This area includes 5 channels that we recommend to you based on your behavior on the site, where your friends are, and what will be most exciting to you. Enjoy!
Below these 5 recommended channels, you can find all other YouNow channels organized neatly into categories. Simply click on a category to have it expand and display the channels it houses.
The “Favs” tab displays the channels you have marked as your favorites, allowing you to access them easily at any time! To favorite a channel, simply click the heart icon and it will appear in the “Favs” tab.
Channel Discovery - Broadcasting
We also implemented some key adjustments to the Broadcasting Channel Selection Screen, adding a little bit of personality - your personality!
1. See Recommended Channels to Broadcast In
The first category “For You” will display both recommended channels based on site activity and channels you’ve favorited
2. Browse Channels by Category
Much like the Channel Discovery Interface for viewing broadcasts, the Broadcast Channel Selection Screen displays all the channels in categories.
3. Preview Live Broadcasts before selecting a Channel
Want to find out whats going down in a channel before broadcasting in it? Now you can! Simply click the broadcaster’s thumbnail to preview the current broadcaster.
4. Find Your Friends & Fans
We’ve added another column that displays how many of your Facebook friends & YouNow fans are present in each channel. If you’d rather broadcast in front of your friends & fans, simply sort by clicking the Friends & Fans column to find which channel they’re in.
We hope you enjoy this new and more efficient way to browse YouNow Channels.
And remember, we want to hear from you! Please leave your opinions and comments about the update below! :)
