60 Creative Ways To Periscope

How To PeriscopeJust when I thought I was finally understanding the social media game (you know…Facebook, Instagram & Twitter) a new player grabs my attention and pulls me in.  It’s called Periscope….have you heard about this new kid in town? Periscope is a free mobile app owned by Twitter where you can stream live video using your smartphone or tablet.  This is creating a valuable forum for bloggers, entrepreneurs, families & social media gurus to connect live with their followers or audience.

I finally got hip to the game and joined  a couple of months ago.  I’ve watched “scopes” (Periscope slang for “live videos”) of beautiful ocean scenes, joined walks through Italian piazzas, listened in on marketing conversations with other bloggers & even been to the streets of Hong Kong…..all in real time!!!  I even shared my own visit to a nearby Lavender Farm during my first scoping session.  So far, I am enjoying this app and am anxious to find new creative ways I can incorporate Periscope into my blogging and social media adventures.

Have you scoped, yet?  Are you ready to get started, but don’t know where to begin?

Here are a couple (ok, 60…I got carried away) of Periscope ideas to get the creative juices flowing.
