2. What role do third-party tools play in the future of live-streaming?

3. How is Instagram's live streaming product different?

4. Where do opportunities exist for Twitter and Periscope? 

Following the conversation:

I'd encourage you to use the hashtag #WISSessions to share your thoughts on Twitter and Facebook.
