By now, we’re all aware that Facebook is more than just a social networking platform, so its service is not only limited to posting statuses and pictures. In the early days, Facebook’s live streaming services were only made available to popular actors and performers.

But that’s not the case anymore as every Facebook user has access to online and mobile live streaming services. Users can watch live streams on Facebook Live on a web browser and on the official Facebook app.   

Sharing live videos with all your friends or specific groups is also possible, and like the other live streaming platforms on this list, during a live stream, broadcasters can see and reply to viewer comments. 

Facebook makes it simple to live stream. All a live streamer has to do is just tap the “Live button” under the status update to start their broadcast. A Facebook Live stream can be private, involve a specific group of friends, or be completely public.

It’s really easy to add filters and text in the live broadcast feed, as well as color on the screen. Options for changing the front and back camera are also possible, and a donation button allows viewers to get involved in other ways.
