What’s the vibe on Periscope?
So there is a new social media app out there.
Isn’t there always? How many more can we cope with?
I am used to social media and sometimes I find it overwhelming.
So Periscope came in and I investigated.
I wasn’t sure.
Was it just a sort of Snapchat? Ps. I do NOT like snapchat.
But… it’s taking off. It helps that it’s linked with Twitter, which is so popular throughout the world, making it have a great head start.
So what is it?
It’s a live streaming video that you take, and anyone can hop on anytime to watch.
During the video, viewers can interact with comments and ‘hearts’ (likes).
Very much in ‘real time’ – which Twitter is all about.
Will it be big?
This one could go either way.
A few times that I have gone on it, I feel like I am just being watched. Why watch and not say anything? Feels a little creepy.
Other times, there has been reaction, conversation, dialogue. An interaction with an unknown world out there. Again, slightly weird, but interesting.
It means you are even more at the beck and call of your mobile – but some would say we are at that point already.
Could this work for business?
Possibly. For some categories and non-profits.
It’s for the entrepreneur to wax lyrical. To preach, to teach.
And it’s also a great way to show off an event live, but that could lead to problems with copyrights etc. Be careful what you stream. Oh well, that will be in the hands of the lawyers.
So will it stay? Going back to that original question.
Quite possibly. As far as the world goes, I think this is going to be big.
Its mobile friendly and able to film protests, breaking news, weddings, celebrities, xtreme sports, vacations…. The world is huge, and people want to see it.
So stay tuned and keep your finger on the button.
