They think it will keep you in the moment while filming, if you can't see yourself.
The world of social media is constantly evolving, and it seems like there's always a new app or platform that everyone is talking about. One of the latest developments in this space is the release of Nocam, a social video app that's been making waves in the tech world.
What sets Nocam apart from other social media apps is its radical approach to authenticity. In a world where filters and edits reign supreme, Nocam is flipping the script by turning off the camera so you can't see how you look while filming. This may sound counterintuitive, but it's actually a brilliant way to make social networking feel more natural and less intimidating.
Think about it: how many times have you taken a selfie, only to delete it because you don't like how you look? Or how many videos have you recorded, only to spend hours editing and filtering them before you feel comfortable sharing them with others? With Nocam, these worries are a thing of the past. You can simply capture the moment as it is, without worrying about how you look or how others will perceive you.
“You know what you’re pointing at — why do you need to see this preview?,” asks Nocam’s co-founder and CEO Justin Spraggins. “The second you’re looking at what you’re about to capture, you get stuffy about it,” he says. “You’re now framing it — it doesn’t feel like it really is. You’re now performing in whatever way to create content.”
Another unique aspect of Nocam is its focus on challenges. If you're a fan of TikTok, you'll love the way Nocam incorporates challenges into its platform. Users can create their own challenges or participate in existing ones, giving them a fun and engaging way to connect with others and share their experiences.
What do you think? Do you want to use an app where you can't see yourself while filming?
