What is Periscope?
Periscope is the latest social media app that lets users stream live video using their cell phone or tablet from wherever there is a Wi-Fi or cellular signal, which means pretty much anywhere! Periscope.tv was launched in the spring of 2015 and has already amassed a huge following of users.
The unique aspect of Periscope is that watchers can type in comments that appear live on the screen to the person doing the broadcast as well as to all other people watching. This creates a fantastic dialogue and unique way for people to interact with one another.
Women Riders Now (WRN) editor Genevieve Schmitt has a Periscope account named @WomenRidersNow. She has started doing live broadcasts called “MotoPeriscope” covering everything from breaking news in the motorcycle world, motorcycle gear and product reviews, safe riding tips and advice, and beginner topics like how to get into motorcycling. She will be broadcasting live at events in the future, so be one of the first ones to follow her because there is no other show like this on the Internet right now.
