Where art thou Periscope!?
In the digital age we have Twitter, we have YouTube,we have Facebook, we have Pinterest–of which I’m not even on–and we also have MySpace! But, wait…… No one uses MySpace anymore. I think….
Anyhow, we have a TON of social media platforms that we can utilize for sharing things, our lives, our pets, bad jokes, baggage from past relationships, whatever. We can do this in the form of text or words on a screen such as this blog post that your’e reading. We can also share audio, or we can share video. Whatever the medium, and whatever the platform, and whatever it is, YOU, and everybody else can share what they want, anytime they want.
Add to that mix, Periscope. A relatively new mobile sharing app that allows you to instantly broadcast yourself live from your smartphone or tablet device, both on Android and iOS. In the video below I recently shot my very first Periscope video (and be sure to follow me on Periscope!) which was quite fun! Of course the very first experience with anything new is going to be exciting, but I am looking forward to the latest trend in digital engagement. Live broadcasting!
