Are you using Facebook Groups to give your community a home? If you aren’t you should! The Live Streaming Pros Facebook Group is an awesome place where people support each other and help everyone to grow as live streamers. And Groups just got better with the addition of some new features. Let’s take a look!
One new feature is the ability to schedule posts to a group. These are just regular posts (photos, or something written) not live video (yet). But still, very useful if you’re trying to keep things steadily rolling forward in a group.
Easier access to settings
Settings like selections for camera and mic have always been available, but not super-easy to find. They have just recently moved them down from the top bar into the area to the right of the LIVE preview window to make those easier to find. And easier is better!
RTMP integration in Groups
RTMP is a way to pipe your live signal from your system to Facebook Groups. Previously you could only do this through Wirecast, but now it’s opened up to a wider list of production software options.
If you’ve ever dived into Facebook’s “Insights” feature, you know about the wealth of information it can give you about activity of people on your Page which posts, are most popular, times that your audience is most active, etc. Facebook has now brought those analysis tools to Groups, so you can see charts for member growth, people’s reactions to your posts, and lots of other cool and useful stuff, all applied to your Group!
If you’d like to learn ways to use LIVE video to improve your business, I want to invite you to a free training webinar where we’ll be talking about techniques for shifting your efforts into high gear! You can sign up here!
