How do I find and follow people on Periscope?

Last Updated: Jul 21, 2016 08:57AM PDT

One of our favorite things about Periscope is the community! There are so many interesting people to follow as they share things from their everyday lives to their adventures abroad to their favorite hobby to something newsworthy that just happened nearby. It’s easy to find new broadcasters to follow on Periscope!

  1. Open the Periscope App and tap the People Tab. Here you will find:
    • A scrolling banner of Featured Users.
    • An option to find friends or a list of your phone contacts that have Periscope.
    • A list of currently Trending broadcasters.
    • If you created your Periscope account with your Twitter account, you’ll also see a list of people that you are ‘Following on Twitter’ but haven’t followed yet on Periscope. We don’t automatically import any of your Twitter followers or those you are following.
  2. You can search for specific people by:
    • Tapping the People Tab
    • Tapping the search icon on the top left on iOS and bottom right on Android
    • Entering the username of the person you are looking for in the search bar
  3. To follow anyone, just tap the "+" icon!
  4. To unfollow, go to that user's profile and tap "unfollow" or uncheck them from your follower list.
