It lists everyone you know in a tab called "people" as well as a small selection of their favorite users. With a very large base of videos for you to watch, coming from around the world and organized for you. The Periscope needs you to actively select content so that it is shared, it also always saved their livestreams for at least 24 hours until you find a more suitable platform.
