    Ever watched people's broadcast, or is a broadcaster yourself?

    This app is captivating, just for the fact that you get to see all parts of their world in the palm of your hands

    Was watching this American walking around different parts of Hong Kong. Going on subway rides, walking through the market. And he's talking to his audience the whole time, along with the interactive portion of Periscope.

    Meerkat is another app of this category

    this and meerkat are similar apps. Yea it's pretty incredible how you can broadcast to the world now and watch people anywhere too. I think this will be huge in the future and will give you multiple viewing angles for various events, protests, concerts, tours, etc. ...not to mention the sex stuff

    Nah bruh... these vigins be killing it for everyone! I loved it at first... but from what I'm witnessing and the rate that it's going. It's just another way for people to expose themselves for money or interwebz popularity.

    In the short time I've been using it.
    Have already seen it abused

    This ain't no sex chat line.

    And Chris Hansen needs to moderate this.
    There's lots of teens on this thing, and too many creeps that give no dambs about what they're typing knowing well that it's being logged.

    Other than that, it's a great app.

    You're getting a LIVE view all over the world. Just seeing the situation with your own set of eyes, no filter, no video editing.

    This guy was broadcasting on the streets of Nigeria.
    You could see the insufficient road infrastructure and sewage system

    Hold on, I'm confused. How is this stuff being broadcasted, though? Do people just hold their phones up and let millions of people see life through their phones? I'm confused.

    Pretty much... you press the 'live broadcast' button and your phone starts recording.

    From there, people around the world can click your link and view anything your phone is seeing.
