I’m going to answer two questions and tell you a mistake I made recently.
First question, what is Periscope? Basically, Periscope is an app which allows you to live-feed video from your phone to people. Think of it as Twitter with live video. People can watch it live and they can replay it later very easily (the best way is likely with a feature called Katch). If you haven’t heard of it, you will. It launched five months ago on March 26, 2015 and as of August 12 had over 10 million users. Over 40 years of video are being watched per day.
Second question, how could someone use Periscope in YL? Here are four general ways: 1) Ask for input/advice, 2) Promote things in advance, 3) Share events with those who can’t be there live, 4) Replay things that need to be repeated. There are a couple challenges: 1) Anyone can watch, but you can set it up as a private feed, 2) If you make it public you might have haters/weirdos watching and commenting. I’ll say more about that at the end.
Here are 10.5 specific ways you could use Periscope in YL
