While the pandemic continues to limit the physical experiences of the young generation today, there’s no stopping them from finding new ways to take charge of their life, discovering new digital platforms that help them open endless possibilities for themselves and their future.
Kumu is a perfect example of such a platform. Launched in 2018, it has built a community of 10 million members and has made a name for itself as the Kumunity, a wholesome place for Filipinos around the world to meet, stream, watch, play, and share content with one another.
If you want to be part of the Kumunity, here’s how you can leverage Kumu’s many features to unlock endless possibilities that will allow you to own your future, especially in 2022:
Create something worth sharing
Got some talent to flex? Whether it’s a new K-pop dance you learned or a new coffee recipe that you created, share it with the world!
On Kumu, you can show everyone what you’ve got and join the growing pool of creative minds—from artists, educators, chefs, gamers, and even online entrepreneurs! You can DJ, perform a skit, start a workshop, run your e-commerce business, or host a DIY show in real time, all in the comfort and safety of your own livestream channel.
If you’d rather sit back and relax, Kumu also has a wide range of curated shows that will make your binge-watch sessions extra worthwhile. “Kumusta Pilipinas” is a mix of a game show and talent showcase livestreamed every week. “The Secret Sauce” is a cooking show where esteemed chefs, restaurant owners, and food enthusiasts share secrets of the trade, their lives and love for anything food.
Get competitive and bring home prizes
If you miss the thrill of playing games and being competitive with your barkada, Kumu will give you that fix. It runs regular livestream trivia game shows like “K Quiz” for K-pop and K-drama fans; “Quiz Mo Ko,” Kumu’s banner program which now features a special twist for contestants; and “Challenge Accepted,” where random players from around the globe compete in three exciting challenges. All these game shows give you the chance to win cash and big prizes.
The live games happen from Monday to Friday, 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., which you can join with friends from anywhere in the world if you’re having a virtual party.
Get entertained while you shop
Nothing beats the joy of going shopping on weekends, but you do not need to miss the brick-and-mortar experience because you can have fun with Kumu’s “shoppertainment” feature. It blends live streaming and e-commerce, which allow users to watch and shop at the same time.
Shopkumu has livestream shopping parties, live product drops and launches, and features your favorite celebrities’ shopping hauls. Enjoy interacting with livestreamers and other shoppers while you buy gifts for family and friends in real time.
Get connected to Filipinos from all over the world
Kumu’s diverse online community of Filipino users can give you the company and connection that you need. On Kumu, you can connect with like-minded people from all over the world and talk freely about anything under the sun by posting on your profile, sharing posts and videos on other social media apps, or using the app’s messenger functions. The recently opened Bahay ni Kumu is the latest online haunt where you can get the best tips on how to become a pro-livestreamer, a PBB housemate and other fun topics.
