Do you Scope yet? Do you even know what I’m talking about? Periscope is the latest social media tool to hit the internet and it’s taking off like wildfire! Using Periscope is not for the faint of heart…Periscope is LIVE streaming video, a direct link between the scoper and the viewer. It’s from our friends at Twitter, so you can use your Twitter account as a jumping off point to find other scopers!
I downloaded Periscope around the 3rd day it was open to the public. I’ve never been an early adopter before, but a radio guy I liked was really loving Periscope and using it to give listeners a peek inside the studio. I was intrigued. But not hooked–not yet. The platform was a lacking right after launch. And since it was so brand new, hardly anyone was there to watch…except some weird guy in Turkey interviewing his goats.
But now Periscope has had a few months to get the kinks out and find some star power.
Like this girl…the Queen of Periscope. In Canada.
Anywho…a bunch of my blogger friends thought we should do a Periscope Challenge to get over our fears of this shiny new medium. So we’re doing #SeptemberScopers !
We’ll do a scope every day in September and you can join in! We have a list of topics for each day so no one feels like they have nothing to talk about.
Here’s what you can do…
Invite others to join you for this challenge…the more people who participate the more fun we’ll have! You can tweet about it, post it on Instagram, make a scope, share it on your blog…just feel free to invite others!
Scope every day (or as often as you can) and make sure you include the hashtag #SeptemberScopers somewhere in the title of your Periscope post (and be sure to share it to Twitter!)
Watch other #SeptemberScopers posts…comment if they are live, share them on Twitter, give them hearts and just support, support, support each other!
Here’s some of the other great bloggers joining us for the challenge! Give them a follow and lets make some hearts in September!
