3x3: Building Communities on Periscope

@JaniceTemple:

Q: You curate the #OwnVoices community channel, which highlights Black history, innovation, culture, and more. How do you build community around common themes and interests?

@GoRiceGirl:

Q: The #PeriGirls have been going strong for years: what’s your secret for sustaining a community over time?

@MrASingh:

Q: Thanks for throwing Periscope a birthday party in London! Why is it important to you to connect with your community IRL, and what are your tips for someone who wants to organize a meet-up?

  • Do your research by asking your audience during a live stream their preferred dates and times for a meet-up, make them feel involved in the planning
  • Reach out to experienced Periscopers and ask them to help and/or share the news
  • Websites like Eventbrite are a brilliant way to plan, organize, and promote your event
  • Choose a venue that’s open, bright and has AC! (It’ll start getting quite warm)
  • Let conversations flow naturally, remember that many of the people who are attending will be first timers and nervous
  • Have fun!
