Live events, live streams, webinars, Twitter Spaces, Insta Live, oh my

What's the heck's the difference?!

Well, I don't think it's about one-way or two-way interaction – every platform can basically work both ways.

Instead, I think each type of event evokes a vibe:

  • A live event's vibe is electric, there's a hum of excitement in the air
  • A live stream's vibe is casual, I'll sit back and enjoy the fun
  • A webinar's vibe is informational, I'm paying attention

The glue that binds them is that they create and nurture a living, breathing community.

If you're trying to decide how to turn a piece of content into a talk, webinar, or Twitch stream, consider the vibe you're going for.
