PEEPS! Have you experienced Periscope yet?
Well, don’t feel badly about it…this live video streaming app isn’t even a month old.
FOR ONCE I am cool and know about something early-ish! #winning
Periscope is a live streaming app, owned by Twitter, that allows you to share and watch live video broadcasts from your iPhone or Android device. It is a ‘visual pulse of what’s happening right now‘. It lets you ‘discover the world through someone else’s eyes‘. You can watch others’ videos, and you can broadcast your own!
In the past week, I’ve watched a Disneyland parade, a first person view of someone running a 5K in England, and I “helped” a songwriter in Texas write lyrics. I also watched someone try to eat ramen, but that was just weird. (Don’t ‘scope your meals, you guys. No one looks good whilst eating.)
As much as I enjoy watching everyone else’s live streams, I am so excited to broadcast – I get so many reader emails and I wish I had more time to answer them all – and now I can, LIVE! Also, who am I kidding…I love to talk, especially about weddings!
I’ll be LIVE on Periscope this Wednesday, July 22nd 4:00PM PST to chat about All Things Wedding and answer all your questions! Seriously, ask me anything!
Feel free to leave a question in the comments here too – and then tune in on Wednesday for my A to your Q. (Stolen with love from M. Forleo!) You can also type in your question live, so don’t be shy!
Here’s how to “‘scope”, as the kids say:
1. Download the app here for iPhone or here for Android. Like Instagram, this is an app only.
2. Sign up with your Twitter account or your phone number. Easy peasy.
3. Add some peeps! (Add me: @reneedalo)
4. Watch others live streams, or broadcast yourself
(For more robust directions, check out this Periscope Tutorial.)
So, let me hear from you – who is already using and loving Periscope like me? And who will be joining me for my Q & A this Wednesday? I may or may not be rocking a new haircut. You’ll have to tune in and see!!!!!!
