Facebook Live Updates 11 January 2017

Lots of updates announced for Facebook Live today - some you may have access to already:

- Go live from your desktop - I know a few people have had access to this - it is still not available to me unfortunately so I can not test it for you

- “Live Contributor” role in Pages, allowing admins to designate specific individuals to go live on behalf of a Page

- Video Insights for Profiles will be available in the forthcoming weeks fr profiles with more than 5000 followers

- Live Comment Pinning - this allows you to highlight specific comments as a broadcaster - I have seen some people already be able to do this though I do not have the feature on my pages yet

- Video Permalink for Pages so you can easily direct people to watch your live video - I reported on this yesterday -

- Crossposting of Previously Live Videos - Now, after a live stream has finished a live broadcast, they can post the video to multiple Pages at the same time. I wrote about this back in November when I first got access

How to easily direct people to your Facebook Live on your Facebook Page

Facebook Live Tip - if you have been using Facebook Live for video streaming you will be aware that sometimes people find it hard to find your live stream when it is live even if they have subscribed to get updates.

This tip is something that help you direct people to your stream when you are live. Read the associated article here with more resources and tips

If you want to direct people to your Facebook Live when you are streaming from your page and you do not have a unique link for a scheduled live stream you can direct people to your Page video url.

As an example for me that would be

Your live video will post to the top of that page in place of your 'featured video' if you have one.

Of course you could also create a short url to direct them to this link or purchase a domain name and redirect it then promote it in your marketing posts in advance of the event.

This quick video shows a live stream at the top of my Facebook Videos page as an example.

How do you easily integrate 360 images onto your WordPress blog without having to use an embed code?

As I have been experimenting more in the last couple of months with 360 cameras I started to wonder how to add 360 photos to my website rather than embedding from other platforms.

In this article I take you through a solution I am currently using and some more technical solutions I have discovered. But what do you do?

I also reference some apps you can use on your phone to create 360 content if you do not have and do not want to invest in a 360 camera at this time to help you create more immersive visual content.

How to get started with Facebook Camera Effects

Have you checked out the new Facebook Camera Effects (available in the UK and Ireland alongside Columbia, Mexico and Taiwan)? I think they have great potential for events and causes - this article takes you through how to get started using them.

And yes you are right - they are a little similar to Snapchat geofilters!

Live stream and social video news week commencing 15 January 2017

As you may be aware, one of my personal goals is to help dispel the myths and concerns about using live video and live streaming for marketing, online PR and communications.

It is a topic I have included in my workshops on digital communications and social business for the last five years and has evolved so much that I now get asked to deliver full day workshops on live video for business.

If you are just starting to exploring using live video, or if you want to keep up with the latest news and trends I have you will find my weekly show The Live Stream Insiders of assistance as I cover the latest live video news, case studies and guidance on using live video in your business for marketing and communications.

In the last episode we covered:

- the latest updates to Facebook Live and how to put them to use in your organisation - the updates include being able to live stream to Facebook Live with your desktop and without the need for third party tools

- the introduction of Superchat for creators of live video on YouTube

- the new beta update for which allows you to schedule live streams to Facebook Live

- and the new beta update of Smiletime (we first discussed the platform back in this episode from August 2016) - they have developed a new iOS app which allows you to start a live stream on mobile, add media and invite people onto screen with you.

Find the replay of the show here

If you are unsure how to get started with live video or 360 video for your business, you can schedule a meeting with me here

Three updates coming to Google Plus soon

In case you missed the annoucement this week there are some updates coming to Google Plus:

1. Hiding low-quality comments - though it is not clear what is defined as high quality and in the screen shot on the article it looks that a short comment such as 'Thanks for posting this' which gets lots of +1's will be seen - not what I personally define as quality!

2. Adjusting how images will be displayed - showing less white space and including zoom functionality to photos on Google+.

3. Bringing back Events - from 24th January we will be able to create and join events on Google+ web as you have in the past. I wonder what prompted this? I've not personally missed events - have you? What kind of events would you plan to use the feature for e.g. promoting a forthcoming live stream? It will be interesting to see the functionality of the event pages.

#GooglePlusUpdate #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #GooglePlusEvents #socialnetworking

From better commenting, to showing you more of what matters, to bringing back Events, we’re making a bunch of improvements to Google+ based on your feedback.

How to integrate Twitch into your live video communications plan De Have you ever wondered how to get started with Twitch​ as a live video platform?

I am delighted that my next guest on the live episode of Talking Social Business will be Jenn Nelson​ who has a passion for sharing knowledge about wine through her profile Wine Antics​

While I usually speak about using live video for business communications, I know there are a lot of people who use live video to share their personal passions and interests - hence my inviting Jenn to join me to share her experience of live video.

Jenn will be joining me on Friday 13 January at 1.30pm / 8.30 am ET and we will be discussing:

- her tips for using live video to share your passion (for her of course this is wine)

- her tips for multi tasking when producing live video

- and her use of Twitch as a live video platform. I hope you will join us - we will be live streaming from Facebook at

Do you have the ability to live stream from your Facebook Page yet?

I don't yet have access to this feature which I know has been rolling out for some time - however you can see what it looks like in this video from +PTZOptics

I don't use Wirecast which is demonstrated in this video so I am not sure of the benefit of using the virtual camera feature mentioned - I think the benefit of the new Facebook feature for those of you wanting to get started with Facebook Live is the fact you will be able to do so connecting your PC mic and video or your separate mic and video without having to use a third party tool or your mobile.

If you are a Wirecast user perhaps you can let us know what you see the benefit would be of using the virtual camera and mic.
