Periscope, one of many livestreaming apps, is getting a huge amount of press.

Hi:

Are you using livestreaming tools to connect with your community?

After years of livestreaming tools being available, but not mainstream, it looks like Periscope and Meerkat may be the apps that make livestreaming a “killer” app for consumers.

What do you think? Are you using them? Do you think they are more than a passing fad?

What I have for you:

  • Some of the latest thinking about using livestreaming apps for politics and nonprofits.
  • Massive changes to the facebook newsfeed that you need to be aware of if you manage a facebook page.
  • Tools and resources to make you smarter.
