I wish there was something, similar to Reddit or Craigslist forums that were zoom type live video feeds.
We are all feeling very isolated right now and as much as I personally don’t like everything going online, I think it could serve a great purpose. Having forums for everything from parenting to food, singles or just plain loneliness, and various online support groups would help people be able to connect when they need it, how they need it, in a way that interests them.
I’m talking something people could connect to 24 hours a day on any topic they choose with other people from around the world, on a live video feed.
Would there be issues? I’m sure. There would need to be monitors and ways to flag people or emergency situations. But I think it could be really great and really useful, especially right now.
And it’s something that even I, with an aversion to video meetups, would use. Because sometimes it just hits you out of the blue, when you want and need someone to connect to, and I think in this whole giant world there is always someone wanting to connect back.
