Have you used Meerkat?
If you have an iPhone or iPad, check it out now. This new livestreaming video app has been one of the hottest new apps since it was released earlier this year. What the app lets you do is post live streaming video from your phone in a very quick and easy way, and to watch livestreams from your friends.
Meerkat ties in with Twitter, so whenever you start broadcasting something, a link automatically goes out to your Twitter followers notifying them of the live broadcast.
Since the app rolled out at SXSW, it's become one of the most talked-about apps online. I tried shooting video of my English bulldog Dingell with it, and wound up mentioned in a VentureBeat story on watching strangers on Meerkat. Admittedly, shooting live video of a dog is kind of lame and not the coolest potential use for this service.
So: what do you think would be a cool way for online marketers to use Meerkat? Tell me what you think in the comments below. What do you think this could be useful for? Can't wait to see your creative ideas!
