Toronto’s Periscope Meetup Is Here!
For those of you who are on Periscope and live in the Greater Toronto Area, this is your chance to come out and meet everybody else! I’m excited to announce that Saturday October 10, 2015 will be the Toronto Periscope Meetup day!
Read below for your two options in coming to Toronto’s First Periscope Meetup.
Meetup 1: #PeriLostInToronto
For those of you who want to have a little fun on the meetup day, Meetup 1 is for you!
As the title says, anybody participating in this meetup will be lost in Toronto. The goal of each scoper is to find another scoper with the help of their viewers. Viewers will be able to pop in and out of all of our scopes and guide us to other scopers.
As a scoper that is lost in Toronto, you are free to scope your surroundings and let people know where you are, and where you’re heading. You can’t go into another scoper’s scope to find out where they are. Well, you could, but that wouldn’t be fun now would it.
To participate in this meetup, here’s what you need to do:
- 11:00am, arrive anywhere within the boundaries. See the map below for the boundaries.
- Start your broadcast with #PeriLostInToronto somewhere in your title.
- Explain what you are doing to your fellow viewers so they know to help you out.
- Start walking and talking on the streets of Toronto and hope you’ll find someone!
Viewers can search for other participants on Twitter with the #PeriLostInToronto hashtag. Or, if they follow the participants, they will get the notifications in their feed.
I will create an ad with all of the participants usernames on them so we can tweet it out and share it on FB or wherever.
After everybody finds each other, we can walk for a bit and head on over to Meetup 2!
Please let me know in the comments below if you are interested in Meetup 1, as I will put your name on the ad to tweet out.
Meetup 2: Lunch
This meetup is for those of you who do not wish to participate in Meetup 1, but would still like to meet everybody.
I will reserve a table so we can have lunch, mingle with each other, and have a good time.
Here are the details for Meetup 2:
275 Yonge St. (Just south of Yonge-Dundas Square)
12:45pm, reservation will be under “Periscope”
I will need a headcount in order to reserve a table, so please comment below and let me know if you plan to have lunch with us.

Sorry I can’t join you. Gotta work!
Sorry to hear that Gordon. Hopefully next time you’ll be able to join us! Until then, keep scoping the beautiful Muskoka region for us!
I’ll be a little late joining the ‘Lost’ portion of the meetup depending on the time required. It could 12 o’clock before I join in the fun. That said, the rest of you could be watching, sharing and encouraging me 🙂
No worries Mark. We may have already found all the scopers by 12 but you never know. :p
I will be there for sure for both Taku!! P.S. I almost didn’t realize that you wanted us to RSVP in the comments. Might want to make that more prominent too 🙂
