Carol and Steve Show: Livestreaming with Hang w/

I'm testing out a new iOS live streaming App called Hang w/.

Oh wait, it doesn't support landscape mode.



Go Pats!

Chat allows viewers to type text to the screen. You can respond by speaking. There's no ability to text chat back. I ended up chatting on Facebook and Messenger.



Looks good when the camera is held steady.



This shot reminds me of the old Carol and Steve Show.

We're going to the Super Bowl as guests of GMC

We're going to the Super Bowl as guests of GMC. Disclosure: All air, hotel, meals, and entertainment will be covered by GMC.

Woo Hoo!



Play, Fun, and Surprise
I love it when a plan comes together. My three words for 2015 are Play, Fun, and Surprise. In my New Year's resolution post, I put it out there that Carol and I would be interested in traveling more and sharing our experiences via social media in real time.

Well, that's what GMC was looking for when they selected us to take this trip. I think it also helped that I'm a big Patriots and auto fan, having reviewed GM cars in the past. ;-)

Join us on the trip
It's all Karma. I love to tell stories, share experiences in real time, and have a conversation as I go. Part of the fun of this connected world is that you can join in on our trips, and comment as we go, and offer suggestions.

So join us on social media as we travel to Phoenix for the Super Bowl.

You can Follow us and interact on twitter, @stevegarfield and @carolgarfield.

I'm on Facebook here and Instagram here.

I made up a twitter list of all the participants.

Sharing the content with a hashtag
I'll be sharing my content with the hashtag #VIPwithGMC as a disclosure. Jenni Hogan, chief media officer of Tagboard, and our host, has set up a tagboard to aggregate twitter and Instagram content: https://tagboard.com/VIPwithGMC/



Jenni got a head start on me, by asking people to tweet out and post Instagram photos of themselves in Seahawks gear, so if you are interested in helping to make this page look better, tweet out and post Instagram photos of youself in Patriots gear with the hashtag #VIPwithGMC.
