OK media friends and public safety professionals. A new tool for the PIO toolbox has emerged and I would like to know what you think. First, there was Meerkat and now a newer version, Periscope.
Both allow live streaming through Twitter with your IPhone. I understand an Android version is soon to be released.
Public Safety leaders in Social Media for Emergency Managers (SMEM) said that live streaming with your phone is a game changer and the most significant advancement in social media since the introduction of Twitter itself, really??
First, Meerkat or Periscope?? What are the advantages and disadvantages of using one or another??
