Periscope has been designed as a way for people around the world to connect and experience different places through live video.  Users can broadcast whenever and wherever they like using their mobile devices and people all over the world can join in and view the world through their eyes, comment, ask questions and most importantly connect.

Each broadcast can last for as long as you like and once a broadcast is over, it can then be watched again and feedback provided for 24 hours, at which time it is then deleted.  Periscope users also have the option to save their broadcasts to their device which allows them to share the video on their website or other social media platforms.
