8 online platforms more exciting than Zoom

I’m going to be taking a look at some incredibly exciting platforms that are really taking Zoom meetings to the next level, mainly due to two reasons:

1) Zoom has reduced the free version down to 40 minute time limits

2) Zoom hasn’t evolved in YEARS. It’s even being called the 21st century BIRO already!

And in the meantime there are people now using awesome alternatives to give their community members more exciting and engaging experiences to connect online – where they can have meaningful connections, collaborate together and have more FUN.
