How A Business Can Use Twitter’s Periscope App. How to Fully Utilise Your YouTube Account. Twitter's Periscope tackles live streaming, Meerkat. Live-streaming video app Periscope is launching out of beta, less than two weeks after Twitter announced its acquisition of the start-up for a reported $100 million.

"We think Periscope is the most powerful way to see what's happening around the world, right now," said CEO and co-founder Kayvan Beykpour. While Periscope will operate independently, it is a big move to bring Twitter, which aims to be the ultimate real-time network, into real-time video. Periscope's launch comes shortly after Meerkat, which also works on live streams via Twitter, exploded in popularity at South by Southwest.

The two differ in at least one key way: Meerkat's streams are only available live, while Periscope videos can be watched for 24 hours after a live stream is over. "We think Periscope can be this real-time visual pulse of what's happening around the world. "We think the experience of being there live is awesome, but if you do miss it you can still watch," said Beykpour. Facebook Launches Messenger Platform For Content Tools And Chat With Businesses.

Facebook isn't the only social network looking to take on Google's YouTube.

Twitter Is Starting to Test Autoplay Videos in iOS Apps

Twitter is looking to ramp up its video rollout by letting some videos play automatically. Starting today, some people in the U.S. who use Twitter's iPhone and iPad apps may notice videos playing in their feed even though they never pressed play. It's part of a two-pronged test the company is conducting to see whether people are more likely to watch a video when it starts playing automatically as it does in Facebook, as opposed to the current model requiring a click to play, as it does in YouTube.

Facebook May Host News Sites’ Content

And nothing makes them more nervous. With 1.4 billion users, the social media site has become a vital source of traffic for publishers looking to reach an increasingly fragmented audience glued to smartphones. In recent months, Facebook has been quietly holding talks with at least half a dozen media companies about hosting their content inside Facebook rather than making users tap a link to go to an external site. Such a plan would represent a leap of faith for news organizations accustomed to keeping their readers within their own ecosystems, as well as accumulating valuable data on them.

Facebook intends to begin testing the new format in the next several months, according to two people with knowledge of the discussions. To make the proposal more appealing to publishers, Facebook has discussed ways for publishers to make money from advertising that would run alongside the content. Meerkat is a little app that's turning live video into a big deal again. After a year and a half working on his video startup, Yevvo, Ben Rubin had started to think about pulling the plug.

The app had been conceived as a way of letting you share live video with your friends, but soon accrued a set of arguably useless features: location tagging, text comments, a variety of login options. Yevvo had acquired 400,000 users since launching in August 2013, but most weren't very active. "There was no heartbeat," Rubin says.

In December, Rubin killed it for good, emailing the app’s users to let them know that Yevvo was no more. On February 27th, he unveiled its replacement: a radically simplified iOS app for broadcasting live video to your Twitter followers. Meerkat streams increased 100 percent from Thursday to Friday Some people gave video tours of their offices. In its first week, Meerkat acquired 28,000 users. Meerkat, in other words, is Twitter’s obsession of the moment. Viwom incorpora el vídeo al correo. Twitter Updates Profiles on Android With Larger Photos.
