Recently on a project with Peacework, we were introduced to Periscope. If you haven’t heard about it yet, let us have the excitement to introduce you to it. Periscope, similar to Meerkat, is a new social media platform that allows you to broadcast an event, meeting, conversation, or whatever, live for a much wider audience. The app also allows viewers to become interactive in the conversation by adding insight, asking questions, or just emoticons. We suggest you play with it and begin sharing it because we see it as an amazing vehicle to build bridges among diverse communities.
Here are some tools to help you better utilize Periscope:
- Fundchat (who we LOVE!) wrote this great article, ‘How Nonprofits Can Benefit From Periscope and Meerkat.‘ Check it out because it has some terrific advice. While you’re on the site, explore because #fundchat is packed with information.
- Here are two videos to help you a little bit. The first video comes from ‘Here is Your Guide‘.
