If you're the type of person who is looking for some live commentary on your video chats with your friends, then Blab.im is for you.

Think of Blab like Google Hangouts, but with a Meerkat or Periscope feel.

You and up to three of your friends can get together in a video chat with an audience. Viewers can comment or switch places with the video chat users. The chat's creator has the ability to accept or deny the incoming chatter, as well as having moderator controls over the live chat feature. The audience has the ability to mute one, or all, of the video chatters. They can also give what Blab calls "feels," which is like voting for a favorite chatter.

According to Blab, followers are gained like this:

"Building up your audience on Blab will provide you with a live audience for all your Blabs! Spontaneous comments, or even a video appearance are likely to happen! Engaging and passionate hosts tend to attract large numbers of followers."

Links and gifs are supported in the comments, making Blab chats similarly interactive for the chatters and the audience. Blab makes it easy to find popular chatters based of off the number of "feels" the user garners during their chats.
