I finally tested Facebook Live and I must say I am so please with it, I always had a problem with Periscope a couple of reasons was as a marketer I believe in content syndication and re-use of my content.
Periscope platform did not make it easy to do that, lets imagine you creating great content and then 24 hours later its gone. Now there is the option to download the content to your phone but if you are making content daily that is added work for you.
Now once you create this content you have to now upload your content if you downloaded the content to your phone … To much work with all the other things we have to do.
The other thing is Periscope is a one to many whereas Facebook Live is a many to many what that means is you have a couple of top people in periscope who loads of followers … In most cases by time you get on they would not follow you.
They constantly create content and you must hurry up and watch there content or its gone forever, unlike Facebook Live whereas is you have 500 friends you have 500 people that could potentially see your content and if they create video content you can see what they created.
The other thing Facebook live is seen in people feeds, so most people are on Facebook all day .. so you tell me how would Periscope win … Twitter dropped the ball on this by not including periscope in its ecosystem.
Here is my test periscope below …
