This week’s activity opened my eyes into the world of Periscope. Honestly, I never touched the app other than when I used it to watch Tuesday lecture’s so this weekend was my first time actually scoping it out ( get it ). So i guess for this blog I have good news and bad news, so like most I will start with the bad. Personally, after Periscoping my first few few videos I automatically did not like it. I really disliked how I got random viewers and comments from creepy guys and that people could view where I was ( some guy actually said he could see me at the mall ) and get involved with my life. And then I realized later that you could make your videos private. But either way, the main reason why I didn’t like Periscope was that it really disconnected me from the people I was with because I was so focused looking at the video I was filming and trying to narrate at the same time. I guess you could say that that’s just my opinion because when I am with my friends and family I never use my phone and also because I am more of private person. However the good news is that I did like how it saved and documented my life events, I just wish I wasn’t the one doing it. And with that, it was really cool getting to watch other people’s videos and see what they were doing. Yes, that is a very hypocritical statement, but like I said in my last activity post, it’s addicting to see what other people are up to. I really enjoyed watching the Periscopers who are in other countries because I hope to travel a lot one day in the future and also because I am very interested in learning about other cultures. So just by viewing random people’s videos , it was like a personal tour into foreign lifestyles. When watching classmate’s videos I found it funny how awkward some people were, except for Shiva’s who seemed like a natural ( Hi Shiva). Overall, I believe if used the right way, Periscope can be a big hit! I just hope people don’t get so attached in sharing every minute of their personal life because that takes away the beauty of actually experiencing it with your full undivided attention.
