How To Do Facebook Live

how to do facebook live - facebook picI just tried Facebook Live over the last couple of days and it is so easy to use.  Why would you want to use it?  Because when you do, you are producing a video of yourself, but you also get feedback from people who watch.  You can customize your message and respond to questions.  I will bet you are wondering how to do Facebook Live…

Instructions On How To Do Facebook Live

When I am on my laptop, I start Facebook.  At the top of the screen is my status update box, the one that says “Create a Post” right above it.  Next to the Create a Post text is “Live Video”.  Click that.  Don’t worry, you won’t be live right away.

That will take you to a screen where you will see yourself on the left (from your camera), and on the right will be a place to “Say something about this live video”.  You will want to put what the video will be about.

Next, click the button at the bottom right that says “Go Live”.  The video will show a countdown and then you will be live.

Depending on when you do Facebook Live, you will get people who join and you will see them and their comments so you can talk to them directly.  This makes it easy to customize your presentation to their questions.

Here is a little video on Youtube on How To Do Facebook Live that I put together:
