SMOKIN’ HOT USERS

We’ve introduced a new system to showcase the top broadcasters.

Smokin' HOT!

We’re putting the power in the users hands to tell us who’s hot. Show the love to your favorite broadcasters with thumbs and coins – and we’ll show you who’s on fire!

Look for the orange users and the smokin’ hot fire badge!

INTRODUCING… DIGITAL TIPS

Digital Tipping!

Tip anywhere from 1 coin (ten cents) all the way up to 100 coins  (ten bucks!) during a live broadcast.

Tip publicly and top the leader board – or privately and only the broadcaster will know it was you!

Broadcasters, keep your eye on the tip jar to see your “Top 5 Tips” and “All Tips”!

Choose to use your tips to purchase Digital Tickets, tip other users or redeem them for cash.

Where’d all the blue go?

If you’re a longtime Hang w/ user, you’ve probably noticed that over the last few weeks, we’ve been changing the status of many users from blue to white. And people are wondering why?

The answer is simple.

We built Hang w/ to show the world that we are all more alike than we are different. Hang w/ was built as a place where people from all walks of life and all backgrounds could spend time together in a truly authentic way. And it works. We’ve all seen how Hanging w/ someone helps you understand them. We believe that Hang w/ helps us all see more clearly that we are all just human beings.

As we’ve grown we’ve been “verifying” certain users along the way. And unfortunately, because of the power of the blue badge, we’ve ended up creating a two class system. We created a world in which hundreds were dominating a platform used by millions. Blue users, by the nature of that color badge, were standing out and making it hard for the regular users to truly get noticed.

Please understand, we love every single one of the blue users. We love the content they have been creating. We know them as people. We think they are great.

But we don’t want a system that favors the few over the many. Hang w/ was built for the masses. It got out of balance. And we need to take big steps to fix it.

So in the last few weeks, and in the weeks moving forward, we are switching a whole lot of users from blue to white. The Hang w/ team included. We will continue to hold out the blue badge for certain users in certain circumstances. And we will likely make adjustments both directions while we work to find the perfect balance.

We will also be introducing a new orange “Hotness” badge that anyone can earn by doing broadcasts that people love. We’ll put the power to determine who’s hot into your hands. Not ours.

We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to watching this incredible platform continue to grow.

Embed a Live Link

Now you can promote your own stuff, live!

Do you have a website? An online store? A favorite blog? A film to promote? A message to spread? An app? Or any other site you want people to see? Well now you can add a web link overlay to your live mobile broadcast! How awesome is that?

Before going live, you now have the ability to showcase a link on your broadcasts that viewers can see. Just go to the “Tap here to embed a link” option right under your awesome hashtag. That way, your viewers can watch your broadcast and simultaneously take a look at this link! This means they can still hear your live broadcast and be scrolling through the attached website all without missing a beat.

So the next time you’re about to go live, don’t forget that your favorite website can go live with you! Have a website to promote? An album to sell? Anything else you’d like to link to? Then this is just the place for it.

To see how it’s done in action, check out our Tutorial Video!
