How to Use Facebook Live Video

The No-Nonsense Instructions to Get You Started

Facebook Live video has arrived. If you use Facebook and you like sharing videos then this article is for you, as I will give you the step-by-step instructions to use Facebook Live.

My wife and I have a hobby. We love dog agility. You may be asking “What is that?” It is a dog sport where we run beside our dog guiding them over and through equipment like hurdles, tunnels, A-Frames and see-saws. We love our dogs and we love playing with them in a way that challenges them and us physically and mentally. When I am not training people, I am training dogs.

My Mum loves my family, including our dogs. Unfortunately, taking her to an agility competition is very challenging logistically. Sometimes we video our competition “runs” and show her the videos when we next see her. But what if we could record our runs and immediately and automatically livestream them via Facebook to Mum (and everyone else who is interested)?

Facebook Live is not the first viable option for livestreaming the interesting moments of our lives. But it is the first one that will automatically do it via Facebook and then leave the video sitting on your timeline and display it in your friends’ feeds (subject to the discretion of Facebook algorithms) for anyone to watch. This makes it EASY and POWERFUL.

The brief video below shows you the step-by-step instructions for how to use Facebook Live video. Enjoy!

Live Streaming Video – What is it?

Live streaming video? What is it? Is it really worth getting excited about?

Live Streaming Video Children

I remember when I first started full-time work. I was teaching business undergraduate students on Queensland’s beautiful Gold Coast. One of my most vivid memories was my first big purchase with my work earnings. It was a new fandangle gadget called a CD player. It was a beautiful thing to look at and use. I could only afford one CD – The Travelling Wilburys. I played the Big O and his friends a LOT. I was so excited to play with this new technology that delivered an amazing quality experience.

I feel the same way again. This time my gadgets are webinar systems, Blab, Periscope and Meerkat. Live streaming really is worth getting excited about.

What is Live Streaming Video?

Live streaming video provides us with the opportunity to communicate with others live via video through our computer, smartphone, tablet or other Internet enabled device. Sometimes, the video is one way, such as Periscope and Meerkat where the presenter uses the software to teach or sell something to the other participants. In other cases, such as Blab, multiple presenters can see each of their video screens as they chat with each other. There is a wide array of products that deliver quality live streaming video experiences, including webinar software. We can all access sophisticated solutions for using live streaming video that can be used for:

  • Conducting meetings
  • Presenting online training
  • Providing product information
  • Generating sales

I am so excited about the potential for live streaming video to enhance communications at work and home. If you like the idea of getting excited too then a great way to learn more about live streaming video is to take a look at my Beginners Guide to Live Streaming. It is free and you can get it here.
