Starting a Scope and Going LIVE

And so let's do this thing now. Let's go live. All right, So your headline is important as an all headlines, all publications try to create a headline that's gonna capture your attention. So what do you think? It's do participatory here for the studio audience. What do you think would really capture the attention of people who would watch this on some about everything you need to know about live streaming? I like that, Harry. What you need to know Perfect. And the answer is gonna be You should be watching creative life. I need to know about live streaming awesome. I love streaming auto. Correct. I do that so often to I just have so much love. But when are we gonna do it's live streaming eso? When you go to start a broadcast, you'll notice that it's gonna look for the connection first, and you won't be able to go until you see that start broadcast red button show up. If it doesn't show up, it's telling you what you're not to be able to start it cause your connection is too weak. Sometim...

es this happens when I go to a concert at the the arena in Denver. Right? And there's all this metal and all these people leeching off the same network, and I just can't get a connection. I'm like, Ah, but Springsteen's on. I want to stream some of this and a and I do that. I choose to do that, Really, for my friends to be ableto have an experiential moment with me. I'm not one of those guys at a concert that's got my phone up the whole time. I'll pick a song, do it for that song, and then I'm done that I want to enjoy the experience myself. But that's a way to bring people into your world is by taking a few minutes to show them where you are, who you're with and what you're doing, especially if you're with the boss. So at the bottom, right above start broadcasts. You see the the little radar around this. That's location I can turn precise location off. I don't want people to know where I am. I want him to know exactly where I am next to. It is if I wanted to do a private broadcast just for excuse me, a few specific friends. I've never done that. I don't have a reason to right here. I can say on Lee users that can follow me unchecked. And then this, uh, Twitter bird will automatically posted to Twitter for me because my Twitter account is connected. So let's put in here at Creative Live is love. We love creative life as well. And those of you at home as you're watching me, prepare this. If you have another device that you can have in your hand and your following me on periscope or on Twitter actual com, you can see from a different angle because I'm going to be shooting this from holding it with my right selfie stick and then to get started. Real simple. All I do is click start broadcast. Now the camera always begins facing out. It's just how periscope works. But if I want to flip the camera, all I do is I double tap on the screen and it flips to the front facing camera and you can flip back and forth as many times as you want and welcome my friends to creative live via periscope. Good to see you all welcome. And here is our studio audience. Everybody cheer who and many the ones watching at home. They're over there on that camera. I don't know how we fit them all in that camera, right? There are other in that one over there. And see, there's the clock. I keep my time. So this is a behind the scenes periscope, and I'm gonna be live here for a few minutes to demonstrate how this works. Hello, Janna Francis. Nice to see you. And usually what I like to do is give shoutouts. For example, there's there's my friend Marco with with that live and there's York and there's Jade and there's Rob and IANA is calling me Yeol and you could see instantly because we're tied into Twitter and because I have periscope followers that the numbers of people watching it's it's instant. The more Twitter followers you have, the more opportunity people will have to see you and to see what you're doing. Now, some of you go ahead and share, please, that we're live right now so I can demonstrate for those watching what it looks like when somebody shares and they're all saying hello to all of you and to all of you in creative live world. So why there's a share from your villas. Thank you for that, Janna. Thank you for sharing, Cindy. So you see how the shares come up in different colors and it's not like a chat it just tells you at. And then the user name has shared and how they've shared. So it tells you that they invited followers or that they've shared on Twitter. And Jeff Goldberg is with us right now. That's as close to live as we're gonna get him here today because he's busy doing other things. But thanks for letting me share your video, Jeff. And now everybody Give me, um, hearts like crazy. You guys just go nuts like show them what it looks like when everybody's just overloading with hearts. Ah, they're just coming up now. Periscope will get creative, and on some holidays they'll change the hearts so wouldn't be unusual during, you know, the holidays for them to turn in the snowman or snow flakes on Valentine's Date will unveil Wednesday their hearts already. Course they are. Ah, hello, Argentina. In fact, if you are joining from a country other than the US or Canada, tell me where you're where you're watching from right now and let's let's see Kazakhstan. No mail. You're not in Kazakhstan.
