Facebook is always at the cutting edge. Keeping up with the fluidity of technology. It was only a matter of time until Facebook got on the live video bandwagon that appeals to so many; not excluding businesswomen and online marketers. Now the social media giant is introducing their live video feature that will allow users to share with their friends and followers as an event is happening in real time.
Now you can bring the photos and videos you share on Facebook to life with live video and collages, to help friends and family feel like they’re in the moment with you.
This is not entirely new, as we shared back in August on our blog, video streaming was made available to celebrities and public figures.

Live Video: Show your friends what you’re seeing in real time
To share live video, tap on Update Status and then select the Live Video icon. You can write a quick description and choose the audience that you want to share with before going live. During your broadcast, you’ll see the number of live viewers, the names of friends who are tuning in, and a real-time stream of comments. When you end your broadcast, it will be saved on your Timeline like any other video, which you can then delete or keep for your friends to watch later.
You can discover live videos from your friends and public figures you follow right in News Feed. While watching a live video, you can tap the Subscribe button to get notified the next time the broadcaster goes live.
