Facebook Live: Something new is coming

February 18th, 2016 by hutdogs

FacebookIconFacebook is launching a new feature called Facebook Live. It allows you to share real-time video with your friends and fans.

It’s similar to Periscope, a live-streaming video mobile app that allows you to broadcast live anytime from anywhere. What’s exciting about Facebook Live is that it’s on Facebook and you can use your built in audience you’ve grown over the years.

Facebook Live is not available to everyone yet but, it sounds like it will roll out to more verified pages and profiles in the coming months.

You will be able to use it from your mobile device. You write a description of what you are about to broadcast, select your audience and then go live.  What’s exciting is what happens during the broadcast. You’ll see the number of viewers and their comments in real time. After it ends, it will save a recording and post to your timeline.

Think about how you might use this for your business.  Perhaps you show some behind the scenes action, show features of a new product, demonstrate how to do something, have your staff sing a song.
