Facebook Live Video Rolls Out to More People

What is Facebook Live Video?

Facebook Live Video is a feature where Facebook users can stream
video in real time and connect with family and friends.

In December, Facebook started testing the ability for people
to share live video on Facebook, and it has been a successful
experiment. Facebook plans to expand the ability to share live
video “to everyone in the U.S. via iPhone.” Facebook will start
rolling Facebook Live Video out to the rest of the world over the coming weeks.

How to Stream Facebook 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 able to see the number of live
viewers, the names of friends who are tuning in and a real-time
stream of comments.

When the broadcast ends, it will be saved on your Timeline and
you can then delete or keep.

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.
