We’re always trying new stuff and pushing the live streaming envelope around here! In this show that means we are streaming to three different platforms at once: Facebook Live, YouTube, and Periscope! Really quad-streaming, because we’re going to both the show account on Periscope AND my personal account.
That’s a LOT of comments to follow. If you’re streaming on your own, going to that many places at once is not something I’d recommend. This is where a team saves you.
Scheduled Shows comes to Facebook Live
We’re also taking a look at Facebook Scheduled Shows. We’ve been waiting for this for a while. The new feature allows you to schedule a show, which puts an announcement out in your timeline and lets people sign up to get a reminder notification when you do go live. One of the difficulties with streaming on Facebook is the issue of promoting your stream. Since you don’t know the URL until you are actually live, you need to send out those promotions in a mad flurry in the first few minutes. This should help with that.
One thing to know is that scheduling is only available to verified Pages. And as always, rolling out may take a while.
Be sure to follow us on Periscope, our name there is @LSPHQ!
