Streaming is fun to do and fun to watch! You not only get to practice your skills when your playing games but also by watching streams. When you watch other people stream, you get a sense of how they carry on their stream which can help you decide what you like and dislike. Some streamers aren’t as conversational which makes it hard for them to grow a following. When streamers talk with their viewers they make connections with them and make the viewers want to stay. However, sometimes it’s hard to find where to start a conversation, so watching how other people converse with their audience is a great way to learn.
Watching other people stream also helps you expose yourself to other games, communities, and even streaming layouts. If you find yourself wanting to change the format of your stream layout, then you might gain inspiration from seeing someone else’s layout! Or maybe you realize that you share an interest with a streamer’s community that you didn’t realize was popular. Streaming and watching streamers all have the same 3 aspects.
Communication is important because it draws people into your stream and it draws you to other streamers. Communication also works as a bridge to connections! Watching streamers can also help you make more friends in the community and maybe even finding you a new duo partner! Lastly, streaming is about having fun. If you’re streaming then it should be because you enjoy it and you enjoy talking to others about it! So by using all 3 aspects, you can communicate with like-minded individuals, build friendships, and have fun doing what you love.
