Live streaming looks like the big trend in social media lately. First, YouTube announces it's going live in 2011. A few years later Twitter comes out with Periscope, a global map of live streaming video channels. Since then, Periscope has become a way to broadcast live video directly to your Twitter followers. Next, Facebook follows suit with a live video option that's currently prioritized over all other media post types.

That leaves us asking, what's next?

The newest kid on the block comes from the former YouTube co-founder Steven Chen; he's calling Nom. You probably guessed it already, the platform is a live streaming video platform; and, as the name suggests, Nom is a social media venue where anyone can pretend to be the next Julia Child. It's a place for recipe sharing and video walkthroughs.

Imagine watching the Food Channel and missing one of the steps in the recipe. Now, imagine you can send the celebrity chef a text message because you missed that last part. Better yet, imagine you are the celebrity chef accruing a massive online following. That's what Nom brings to the table. 

You may find this platform useful for a creative outreach or ministry, considering how many foodies we have in our congregations. So give it a look and let us know in the comments what you think. Click here to try out Nom.
