Hello my fellow travelers. If only for a brief moment, I will interrupt my travel adventures to return to the United States to participate in the Periscope Community Summit in San Francisco. I will be among dozens of speakers and 1,000 attendees who use the live-streaming app – chosen by Apple as the Best App of 2015 – to share their lives with the world or just watch what others are doing. The live-streaming app has taken the world by storm.
I use Periscope to share my travels, travel tips and hopefully teach viewers a thing or two each day about other cultures. I use other social media platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and several others, but lately I have been spending loads of time broadcasting live on Periscope, because the app is amazing, being able to show people, places and things live with little effort. Since Periscope launched in March 2015 – I began using the app in April – more than 10 million users have embraced Periscope – and counting. If you are not using Periscope, you should check it out.
Just a few months after the app was created, so was the Periscope Community Summit. To learn more about the summit, click the above link. In my speech at the summit, I will share travel tales, tips and discuss how social networks and apps such as Periscope play an important role in extended travel.
