Twitter Lists can be a great way of creating ‘channels’ for viewing particular types of content on Periscope. For example, I’ve created an Aussie Live Streamers Twitter list that is useful for viewing Periscope broadcasts from Australia.
You could even create a Twitter List of all you regular viewers so that you can dip into that list from time to time to connect with them outside of your broadcasts.
As a Periscope broadcaster, a large part of your audience is already active on Twitter. Are you there connecting with them?
Twitter can be difficult to consume if you follow more than a handful of people. Instead of trying to sip from Twitter’s mighty firehose, you can enjoy the different flavours from several different taps, using Twitter lists.
If you know of an event coming up build a Twitter list before the event. The list can be made private for you own use or it can be made public and you can promote it and encourage others to use it during the event.
Six Second Tech is a weekly series of short how-to video tutorials to help you be more productive with your time and your technology.
How-to videos on YouTube are too long
Let’s say you need to find out how to zoom in on Snapchat, how to take a screenshot on a Mac, or how to turn off Twitter notifications. You might go straight to YouTube to search for these kinds of instructional videos. But tutorials and how-to videos on YouTube can often be anywhere from a couple of minutes to half an hour, or more!
What if you could consume this information much more quickly, in just a few seconds?
Move aside Vine and Instagram, RWND is a fun new free app from Melbourne startup Zarfo that is taking the world by storm.
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Instagram has the capacity to record 15 seconds of video, Vine has 6 seconds but the kids, their attention spans are getting shorter every day. RWND allows you to record a maximum of 2 seconds of video and then plays it back in reverse to create a video that has a total duration of 4 seconds. This simple rewind effect, combined with everyday life activities is recipe for some often hilarious outcomes.
If you find yourself only watching half an Instagram or Vine video before flicking to the next video then RWND is the app for you.
RWND Top Three of the Week
The RWND Top Three is a weekly series of video promotions run by Vintuitive that highlights the top three RWND submissions from the week and is published on YouTube, Instagram and Vine.
Vintuitive is bringing the Internet into the physical world with QR Cubes. The QR Cube is a fun way for people to interact with your business using a phone or other mobile device.
QR and the Mobile Web
With the increasing number of people accessing the web from mobile devices, QR Codes provide a much easier way to access things on the web while on the move. With traditional printed advertising the visitor has to pull up the mini keyboard on their phone, type in the address hoping that no spelling mistakes or accidental typos are made, which, they inevitably are, meaning a second or third attempt is often necessary.
With a QR code, you simply bring up the QR reader app and wave your phone over object – it’s that easy!
Beware of emails pretending to be from YouTube. I’ve received a few variations notifying me that my video has been approved or that I’ve received a personal message. It includes a link to your new video or a link to what looks like your inbox but it is in fact a third party website. Read More »
