Have you been scoped? I’m not talking about a colonoscopy here folks. Although that is something important to have done. What I am talking about is the new live video app by the makers of Twitter that is sweeping the social nation.
I did my first scope about two weeks ago right after I dropped my husband off at the airport. I was literally driving in the car and had my daughter hold the phone while I talked about one of my blog posts regarding husbands who travel. It was really fun but hardly anyone showed up. I’m ok with that.
The next scope I did was sort of an interview with my daughter where in we talked a bit about a post I wrote regarding teenage girls and what they need from their moms. She was a little gun shy and again not too many followers but that’s ok because I’m just getting started.
Halpern says Periscope is going to be a game changer and I am anxious to see how scoping evolves over the next few months especially since they already have over 10 million users.
My most recent scope was a conversation with my oldest son, Case. We discussed the fact that he has moved back home since finishing college and how it’s working for him and the family. I love the idea that I can involve others to ask questions, make comments and connect in a whole new way. Michael Hyatt discusses 9 reasons why he loves Periscope and why we should adopt it asap……
“I find myself developing deep friendships and new friendships with fellow “scopers.” I jump on their broadcasts and promote them on mine. I am noticing a new community developing—and, it involves audience members, too.”
I have to admit, I’m kind of excited to see where this goes. I would love to get better at broadcasting and scope more often. So stay tuned on Periscope to see and hear what my cracked conclusion is on a number of topics and please send comments and hearts so I feel loved. You can find me @KristenMunson on Twitter and Periscope!
