Facebook Live videos have become one of the most engaging features on Facebook. Learn how to navigate Facebook live videos in minutes.

It shouldn’t be of surprise that more and more businesses are focused on producing video content and you should too. Facebook like many other platforms such as YouTube and Periscope (Twitter) has simplified the process of creating video content to connect with your audience. Introducing the new FB Live video for laptop and desktop.

People around the world can broadcast live video to Facebook from their desktop or laptop computers. While it’s been possible for people to go live to Facebook from mobile devices since last year, desktop or laptop computers provide a stable camera setup that can be beneficial to many types of Facebook Live broadcasts — from Q&As to vlogs to tutorials to business presentations to any broadcast from someone who isn’t on the move.

To get started on your live broadcast from a computer, click “Live Video” from the top of your News Feed or Timeline, then follow the prompts to add a description and choose your audience.

Go Live with Streaming Software

Facebook also added a new feature that makes it easy to use streaming software or external hardware when going live from a computer. This capability previously was possible only through a Page, but we’ve heard feedback from our community that it would be useful for profiles, too.

With this update, people can seamlessly share their screens, insert graphics, switch cameras, or use professional equipment in Facebook Live videos. They also have the option to broadcast to Facebook Groups they belong to, Facebook Events they’re part of, or Facebook Pages they manage.

If you’re an onliner, this new feature makes it easier than ever to stream your PC business presentations to prospects, friends and followers and engage with them. If you’re giving your friends or followers a tutorial or how-to guide, you can incorporate on-screen graphics, titles, and overlays. Or go live and switch seamlessly between cameras as you narrate the process.

You can go live with streaming software or external hardware directly from News Feed, your profile, or the direct link here.

Facebook want to make Facebook Live as enjoyable and interactive as possible, and Facebook hope that these updates will make it easier for people to connect, hang out, and share with friends and public audiences.

Conclusion: Facebook live feature for desktop and laptop is a very useful and powerful tool for your AIM Global business, make the most out of it.
