Periscope is Twitter’s free new LIVE STREAMING app. Less than two weeks ago, I had barely heard of Periscope. I vaguely recall seeing a few online articles with Periscope in the title, but I wasn’t really paying attention. I am now! Suddenly, Periscope is the awesome new thing that Internet Marketers and Social Media Gurus are talking about. And they talk about it A LOT.
But, why? It doesn’t cook dinner or change dirty diapers for tired Moms, so why should I, or you, or anyone, really care? Well, for one, I am a blogger with an ever-increasing social media following. Everyone has known about Facebook and Twitter for ages! Many of us also use Google+ and LinkedIn. But, remember when Pinterest was the HOT new thing? I was slow to embrace it. But, when I did, I jumped on board with gusto! I now have 266 boards with a total of over 12,000 pins, all of which I created on my own (except for a few community boards to which I contribute). I have 6.5k followers. That’s about the same following I have on my Facebook business page, but it was a lot more fun to do! 😉 I did spend hours and hours and hours on Pinterest in my early days of
obsession dedication. More recently, Instagram has been a hot topic. Alas, I haven’t spent much time there, but I am learning. All of these successful social media platforms have contributed to my ever-increasing success online. (It would be even more so, if I was better at using each and every one of them.) So, when something new appears to be the next big thing, I stop and take notice.
If you are not a blogger, or a social media guru, or an Internet Marketer, you might be thinking, why should I care? Well, here’s the thing, Periscope appears to be one of those things that anyone can embrace. Want to save and share clips from your vacation, your home remodel, a birthday party, or baby’s first steps? Periscope allows you to do that! If you have something funny – or serious – to share with the world – or just your family – you can do it with Periscope.
