A picture may be worth a thousand words, but live video can take you someplace and show you around. ~ Periscope
When Clay Aiken introduced me to Periscope this spring, I was excited. However, I wondered if it was the latest whim and would disappear as quickly as it appeared. But I was wrong!
Periscope, the popular live video app, just hit a major milestone. On August 2, it surpassed 10 million active accounts.
Periscope posted the following “thank you” note:
On August 2nd, we surpassed 10 million Periscope accounts. We launched Periscope just four months ago, on March 26, 2015. We would like to thank every single one of you for taking the time to use something that we’ve worked so hard to create. It means everything to us.
The company added that 21 million minutes of footage is being watched every 24 hours (which equates to 40 years in a day).
Periscope is an “on the go” broadcasting station. It lets you host interactive events in real time and host insider videos, live Q&A sessions and much more. And, it’s not just a broadcast channel. Periscope allows for two-way communication between its user and the audience for more fun and better communications.
Periscope has certainly been making waves in digital media. It seems it is not a whim but something that will be around for a long time…It also proves that Clay is knowledgeable about the new and exciting digital world. I am glad that Clay has shared Periscope with his followers.
