Maria Peagler: Really what Blab and Periscope are are the democratization of broadcasting. You no longer need to be a celebrity, have a cameraman and a big studio to put on a decides. All you need is one person in front of a smartphone or a computer and you can have your own broadcast. It’s literally that simple. It is an exciting time. I can tell you, if I were sitting back in my journalism 101 class at the University of Georgia, they would be all over this because it allows anyone to be a citizen journalist. You can be Charlie Rose. You can be Jimmy Fallon. You can be Oprah. You can host your own talk show. You can host your own TV channel. That’s what is so exciting about this.
Let’s take a look first at Periscope. We’re going to take a look at what it is, how people are using it, and I’m going to give you a little glimpse of a Periscope that I did yesterday. What is Periscope? Periscope is a mobile-only app that was purchased by Twitter, that allows you to both broadcast live stream video and watch live stream video from other scopers. That’s what these are called. People who use Periscope are called scopers, and the broadcast is called a scope. Here are a few of its features. It’s mobile-only. It is specifically for a smartphone or tablet. You’re broadcasting live video and you can watch live broadcasts as well.
Blab is the second live stream app that we’re going to be talking about today. It’s very similar to Periscope, but it’s different in a couple of ways. First, it’s meant for a group broadcast. You have to have two to four people to do a blab. You cannot do a solo blab. It’s not possible because they will not make it public if it’s just one person. You literally have to do it with two to four people. That’s the minimum and maximum. You can do it either from desktop or mobile. I have to tell you I find Blab absolutely fascinating. I’m going to show you how you would use this and why I find it so fascinating.
Their motto is “push a button, start a talk show.” It’s literally that easy. If you ever tried Google Hangouts, this is what Google Hangouts should have been but wasn’t. It is so easy to use. It’s easy to find people. The really cool thing is you can hop on a blab with anybody. If they have an open seat, if they don’t have four people on their blab, you can hop on. You can watch live conversations either from your mobile phone or from your desktop. You can interact, again, via Twitter. Now Blab is not owned by Twitter but it’s integrated with it. You can leave comments on Blab. You can … they call it tell a little bird, which is tell people something that you’re hearing on a blab. You can see here that they have something similar to hearts in Periscope. You give people props. Everybody has their own little prop hands. If somebody in a blab is doing something that you like or makes a point that you like, you click on it.
Let’s look at a comparison of the two. Periscope and Blab are both live stream broadcasting applications. Periscope is mobile-only. You cannot do anything with it on the desktop. Blab is both mobile and desktop. I just showed you Blab from my desktop. Periscope is a one-person broadcast only. Multiple people can watch it but only one person is broadcasting on a scope at a time. On Blab you have to have at least two people. Now it looked like Chris Brogan was able to record his just being one person, but I’m going to have to try that and see. Because in the Blab help it says that they don’t make it public until you have two people, and that the maximum you can have is four. There’s no limit to the number of people who are interacting. Now, Periscope will only save your broadcast for 24 hours
