Periscope: It’s new and it’s hot. If you are not on it, you are missing out on international recognition.
So what is Periscope?
This is a live video streaming application available for IOS and Android developed by 해외축구중계사이트 Kayvon Beykpour and Joe Bernstein. This application has been purchased by Twitter for 100 million dollars in March 2015.
Periscope basically enables you to go “live” with your mobile anytime and anywhere, and to watch people’s live broadcasts from all over the world. There are approximately 14 million users on periscope with almost 100 thousand joining in every day.
Users of Periscope are able to choose whether or not to make their video public (anywhere in the world) or simply viewable to certain users such as their friends or families.
Periscope allows viewers to send “hearts” to the broadcaster by tapping on the mobile screen if he or she likes the video.
After 24 hours, the broadcast is removed from the application.
Since the month of May, you can only log in with Twitter but with the new update you can now log in with your phone number or with Facebook, proof that Periscope has gone for more accessibility and user friendly.
I) How to get started with Periscope
First of all you need to download the application. You can log in with Twitter, your phone or Facebook but I highly recommend to log in with Twitter as Twitter owns Periscope, they are directly linked. You will then be asked if you want to receive Periscope notifications on your phone, this allows you any time to know when somebody is doing a live stream.
When you click on the little globe, a world map will appear to your screen with small red points: these are all the places in the world when people are live streaming. If you are not particularly interested in finding live streams in a particular location with the map, you have a simple list of the live videos without the map, just click on “list” at the top, next to “map”. The globe gives you two different views of the different events across the world.
