The Community: How to handle drama

Some people just can’t help themselves. They live for the drama and see life as a competition. Not us, though. We’re allergic. In fact, we believe YouNow is a platform that should enable creators to encourage and lift up others in the community. So, please get your drama fix from The Real Housewives rather than here. 




-Don’t feed into it. If the community knows that you won’t react, they won't even try. 

  • If you engage with an antagonist, they will take it as an invitation to just keep poking
  • Are they still poking you? #Report #Block #ByeFelicia  

-Set broadcast referees to silence the noise as you stream.

  • Appoint a loyal fan who you know you can trust.


-Know your boundaries. No one has any right to pressure you for anything you're uncomfortable sharing. Do not let anyone convince you otherwise. 

We know that all of the above is easier said than done. Please remind yourself that those attempting to get under your skin have no power over you and your content. At the end of the day, a fire dies when you don’t feed it.
