Rocketboom Registers 7800 Comments During Live YouTube Show

Last week, as part of pilot of limited live programs, Rocketboom produced three, one hour shows. While viewership for these and the other shows were limited, interactivity and comments for the Rocketboom shows were very high, says founder Andrew Baron. One of the RB shows had 7800 comments, Baron tells me. He also says that YouTube’s system for counting live streams was not working properly, so it was impossible to have an accurate number. But, overall, the the YouTube system “seemed sound to me,” he says. On Tuesday, we caught up with Molly, host of Rocketboom. She talks about the live show experience. Andy Plesser
