In today’s episode we sit down and talk with Frida Villalobos, spokesperson for Neighborhood Centers, and take a look at Periscope, the latest “hot” tool in social media.
Neighborhood Centers is the largest non-profit in the Houston area. They recently were featured in the New York Times, in an article entitled “What Do the Poor Need? Try Asking Them.” The article takes a look at their methodology, “appreciative inquiry,” and how the approach has impacted how they work with communities in and around Houston.
Periscope is one of the live streaming apps that launched earlier this year. Owned by Twitter, it’s the preferred live streaming option for show host Anjelica. In this segment we find out why.
