What is BuzzVideo - Live Trivia Show?

BuzzVideo is an aggregate media app, not unlike the news app built into iOS devices, that pulls trending videos and GIFs, in addition to personalized picks, based upon user preferences.

 

Rated for users ages 17 years and older, BuzzVideo is free to download from both the App Store and Google Play but does feature in-app advertisements.


The BuzzVideo app is an eclectic mix of things, as it is a media aggregate, a publishing platform (promising revenue to its publishers), as well as a quiz game.

 

Users can use BuzzVideo as a way to watch trending videos and funny GIFs, but they’re also provided with a “newsfeed” of sorts that uses an algorithm to serve them viral videos customized to their interests.

 

So, the first aspect of BuzzVideo is that it’s merely an app that provides a running feed of top viral videos and GIFs for users to consume and/ or share on other social media platforms.

 

BuzzVideo users are offered a slew of video categories to choose from, including Funny, Top, Entertainment, Society, Cute, Lifestyle, Sports, Car, Tech, Military, Food, and Gaming.

 

Tap on one of the categories and users are taken to a newsfeed filled with videos in the same genre. Users have the option of scrolling through or tapping to select individual videos to watch. 

   

BuzzVideo features a live trivia game each day. Called Beat the Q, users must be registered to play the live trivia game. Users may register with their Facebook, Twitter, or Google login information, or by merely inputting their cell phone number.

 

Beat the Q is a single round elimination so those users who do not have any “Extra Lives,” which are typically earned for referring friends to the app, are eliminated as soon as they register an incorrect answer. Make it through all 12 rounds and winners share the pot of winnings equally.

Is BuzzVideo - Live Trivia Show safe for my kids?

Parents should be aware that the BuzzVideo app is a time-killer, filled with frivolous video clips. That being said, this app may be safe for older, mature teens with parental supervision.

BuzzVideo has also hopped on the live trivia train, offering a live trivia game called Beat the Q once per day for a cash prize.

BuzzVideo users are encouraged to invite their friends, they receive 2500 coins for doing so, and the app makes it easy for users to connect their Twitter and Facebook accounts to do so.

Parents should discuss the dangers of using other social media accounts for logins on different platforms, as it takes away a layer of protection from their personal information.

Parents should be aware that the user age for BuzzVideo is 17 years and older, as there is a lot of iffy content in the videos posted on the site. In addition to profanity and drug/alcohol/tobacco references, users can expect to encounter mature and/or suggestive content as well.

Another facet of BuzzVideo is the ability for users to generate their own content and post on the platform. Users may upload previously recorded video or record directly to the platform by tapping the video icon at the bottom of the screen. 

Users posting content to the platform can earn revenue based upon the number of plays their video content receives. The ability to post content directly to the platform is something parents should be aware of as the child may be running their own “channel” without them knowing.

Parents should know that users can comment directly on videos via chat feed, so this is another area where children can be exposed to profanity and other mature content, as well as interact with other users on the platform.
