Global – Live streaming apps such as Meerkat and Persicope are still relatively niche, but in our latest tribe report we explore how Live Streamers live their lives through the lens of Periscope.

  • Our tribe, introduced during the Tech Futures Forum, are avid users of Persicopers
  • Each began using live streaming for different purposes, but all return for the community-building

Our Live Streamers each use Periscope for different reasons. Anita Wing Lee, 24, uses it as an outlet for her motivational speaking business, while musician Sam King, 31, shares his new music with his followers. Meanwhile, web designer Alexis Cardoza uses it simply to share his life. Each creates personal, unfiltered content that is as watchable as any television show; hence, they attract thousands of followers, and – more importantly for Periscope metrics – millions of hearts.
