You've seen it in the category section. You've probably heard of it in forums, on the news and other websites. What exactly is Lifecasting?

The term Lifecasting, according to Wikipedia, "is a continual broadcast of events in a person's life through digital media". Lifecasting started out as strapping a webcam (connected to a small laptop with a network card) somewhere on a person's body. This helped the person to share their life to others over the use of internet. Lifecasting was a new concept when the term was coined back in 2007 but quickly caught on with the popularity of reality TV shows and the ever-growing options of sharing information virtually-free over the internet. 

 

Because of the intimate nature of this form of socializing, Lifecasting is a rare and questionable social media. With the departure of the highly popular lifecasting host, Justin.tv, Lifecasting isn't seen as much on the internet today. It doesn't have to be this way!
