Facebook Expands It’s Live Video Feature

Facebook is starting to roll our an enhanced live video streaming service which is going to go head-on with Periscope. Orignally confined to the ‘Facebook mentions’ app for people and brands with a blue tick, Facebook quietly enabled live streaming for select users inside of the standard Facebook earlier this year.

Now the company are rolling out a full service which allowes individuals and businesses to live stream from the Facebook app. You can also stream via private Facebook groups and event pages too! The full interface is yet to arrive in the U.K. But in America right now, they have a dedicated video tab on the Facebook app, and via your desktop you can access a live map just like you can on Periscope.

Facebook have produced a media release on their newsroom website here:
