A year ago this week, Periscope the live stream app from Twitter launched, hot on the heels of the live streaming app Meerkat. What a difference a year can make; Meerkat recently announced it is changing and commented:
The distribution advantages of Twitter/Periscope and Facebook Live drew more early users to them away from us and we were not able to grow as quickly alongside as we had planned.
We have seen many third party apps develop to enable users to live stream from a mobile device using YouTube Live as the platform. Significantly Facebook Live is rolling out across the globe for personal use and for business pages.
To mark the one year anniversary of Periscope, I decided to have a special episode of the show, featuring people who have been using Periscope over the last year and to explore their experiences.
The response I received from people I approached was terrific, and as a result we have four special episodes with this first one featuring five guests.
I hope you will enjoy this episode, especially if you have not yet explored mobile live streaming for your business.
