Forget shaky smartphone live videos, forget complex Live API setups. Now, you can now go live on Facebook, from any web browser on your computer.
Everyone can go Live on Facebook. But to do so it usually meant shaky handheld videos from your smartphone. Publishers always had the opportunity to go through complex setups and the Live API, but this was never really accessible to most. So, to boost the usage of its Live feature even more, Facebook is now making Live accessible from your computer!
For now, this is only for Pages, not for profiles, but it will no doubt unleash the creativity of many vloggers.
And that’s not all.
Until now, to go live from a Facebook Page, you had to be an admin of that Page. But starting today, Facebook is introducing a new role in Pages: Live Contributor.
A Live Contributor will have the capacity to go Live on your Page at any moment, using the Facebook Blue app, and without compromising the security and control of Pages. Check out this tutorial to get started.
Finally, Facebook is also introducing two more features for Live. First, the ability for broadcasters to pin comments to the bottom of a live broadcast to highlight specific interactions. Second, you will now be able to crosspost live videos across several Pages, the same way you can do for uploads.
Facebook Live is getting a lot sexier. What are you waiting for to go live?
