Periscope Debut

Earlier this week I joined the new craze in social media, Periscope.  It's an app that you can download to your phone and tablet. You can watch people broadcasting live scopes (a scope is what a Periscope broadcast is called). You can also watch a scope for a few hours after it was first broadcast.

I broadcast my first scope this afternoon. It was just a trial to see if I could work out how to do it. Make sure the camera worked, I could be heard, the best way to set up my tablet etc. I had 20 viewers watch live and they gave me lots of encouragement. The great thing about Periscope is that you can type messages to the person broadcasting. Your messages shows up on screen which enables the broadcaster to interact with viewers live.  I really enjoyed it, although I was nervous and as it was live, a few things went slightly wrong. 

At the time of writing this, you can still view my first scope but I'm not sure how long its available for. I'm YarnAddictAnni on Periscope. Download Periscope on your smart phone or tablet and search for YarnAddictAnni.

I'll be doing more live scopes soon. I'm planning tutorials, chats about new designs, yarns, things I'm working on etc. If there is anything you would like me to talk about, please let me know in the comments.

Are you on Periscope? If so, let me know your username and say hello next time I do a scope.
