Periscope


Creative uses for Periscope

Periscope is a social media tool, that enables individuals to broadcast a live video feed on the internet. It can be accessed via an “app”, provides live chat and conversation and includes a “rescoped” (kinda meaning a retweet) to help share the stream. The reason it’s becoming popular is the fact that videos can be made public or private to selected users.

Think business webinars, breaking news, or interactive support and get yourself online.
