Periscope- The New Cool?

Periscope- The New Cool?

You may have heard about one of the latest apps to hit the world of social media. Periscope… Love it or hate it, live video streaming apps are here to stay. Whilst Periscope has its fair share of time wasting teenage users, big brands are also claiming their Periscope handles. If you know where to look, there are some really interesting accounts.

Watch people from all around the world; fashion designers at Selfridges, Q&A sessions with big business leaders, lectures at Ivy League universities. Listen to thought leaders (and celebs) talk about their day. Look inside an atom collider, you can even go on a hot air balloon ride! The possibilities using this medium are literally endless. Periscope is in its initial stages and therefore is screaming out for businesses to use the medium well.

Here’s the basics regarding Periscope.
