Periscope example

The hearts floating upward on the screen are pretty much like “likes” on Facebook, well, sort of. They’re given by viewers. From what I understand, the hearts are credited to your profile and the more hearts you have on your profile, the better your chances of appearing up top whenever you broadcast. In theory, the closer you are to the top, the more views you’ll get because folks aren’t into scrolling down too far. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

The number in the bottom right corner indicates how many viewers are in the room, but I’ve noticed it’s not always 100% accurate.
