The live-streaming social media video app, Meerkat, has announced a major update this week. The company has added a new feature called Cameo which let’s you make a 60-second video cameo appearance during someone’s live video stream. This new feature now sets Meerkat apart from its competitor, Periscope. However, that’s not all that Meerkat has announced. They pulled another rabbit out of their hat by giving everyone the ability to connect their Facebook account to Meerkat instead of Twitter. Why the big change? Well, the main reason could be that Periscope is owned by Twitter and they could be trying to cut ties with a competitor. We’ll have to wait to see how it all pans out.
In the meantime, you now have more reasons to give Meerkat a try. If you do, email us back at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you think of Meerkat. If you would like to write a report on your experience, we would love to feature you on our website.
