12 Steps To Using Facebook Live

Published on 11/11/2016
For additional information  Click Here

If your Facebook feed is anything like mine then you have probably seen a few of your friends or collegues going "Live". It's kind of like a selfie on steroids....but there are a number of good uses for this new Facebook platform as well.

If you have a team of people on your group page you can certainly get your message out in this fashion. Rather than dialing in to the weekly conference call, schedule a Facebook Live session.

I've even heard that some churches are using the platform to broadcast their weekend services. Pretty interesting.

With that being said, you'll likely understand that there are some set up and guidelines requirements before going "Live". Following are 12 steps to follow in utilizing this platform properly.

Step 1: Go to your own Facebook profile on your device and open up the status bar by clicking on the Status tab, as if you're going to write a new post.

Step 2: Tap the "Live Video" icon, which looks like a video camera.

Step 3: Give Facebook access to your camera and microphone when prompted.

You will stop receiving these notifications after the first time you use it.

Step 4: Press the blue "Continue" button on the introductory page.

No need to fret -- pressing "Continue" won't start the recording. The next few steps will be preparing your live video before you go live.

Step 5: Choose your privacy setting.

If you're posting for your business, you will probably want to make it public. But if you're a newbie to Facebook Live and want to check it out first, or want to see what something will look like, then switch the privacy setting to "Only Me." You can find the "Only Me" option by clicking "More" and scrolling all the way to the bottom.

Step 6: Write a compelling description.

Basically, you give your broadcast a description, which will show up on people's News Feeds like a status update above the video. You mihgt want to write an attention-grabbing so people will tune in and help them understand what your broadcast is about.

Step 7: Set up your camera view.

Prior to clicking "Go Live," make sure your camera is pointing in the direction you want it to. In other words, if you want your face in the video you should switch the camera to selfie mode.

It really doesn't matter if your device is vertical or horizontal because the video will be square in the feed.

Step 8: Click the blue "Go Live" button to start broadcasting.

Once you click it, Facebook will give you a countdown "3, 2, 1 ..." and then you'll be liveand in person. As soon as you start streaming, your live video will appear in your News Feed and others' News Feeds just like any other post.

Just so you know, your broadcast be up to 90 minutes in length.

Step 9: Interact with viewers and commenters.

You will be able to see how many viewers are watching and the time elapsed in the top left of your screen. Commenters will be shown on the bottom of the screen.

Step 10: Click "Finish" to end the broadcast.

Once you do this, the video will stay on your Timeline or Page like any other video post.

Step 11: Save the video to your camera roll.

Once you finish your broadcast, you'll be given the option to save your video to your camera roll. It's probably a good idea to do this so you have it handy.

Step 12: You're done!

BAZINGA! You have the option to go back to the post on your Timeline or Page and edit the description, change the privacy settings, or delete the video, just like you would any other post.

Try it - you might just like!!
