Facebook Adds New Features To Live Video Tool

The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing

Facebook has added new features to its live video tool. Since the beginning of the year, Facebook has allowed some users to broadcast live videos. Before going live, users can select the audience who will be able to view the video and write a short description to describe the video content. Once the user is broadcasting live, they will be able to see the number of people watching the video and any live comments that viewers are posting. After filming has finished, the video can either be deleted or kept and posted on the person or Page’s timeline. The new features allow users to use filters on their live videos, such as black and white and sepia, and also allow viewers to react using all six new reactions: like, love, wow, haha, sad and angry. When a viewer reacts or leaves a comment, this will now display on the actual video to give a clearer context to the broadcaster’s actions for people who choose to watch the video later. Facebook commented on the new features, saying: “the updates are in the spirit of making Live a more permanent part of Facebook that’s hopefully something people end up liking… We are really trying to focus on what’s helpful to people.”
