There times in a person's life when you might just want to take a step back from the limelight and not have to keep your social content up to date.

You can apply all sorts of special effects if you like, including masks, flags, borders, frames etc. You can rotate the camera angle, create effects like negative and sepia, have multiple versions of the broadcast in one frame, etc. It can also broadcast on more than one chat site at the same time, for example on Yahoo! and MSN.
