If you’re a Facebook user looking for a place to watch New York’s Time Square ball drop this New Year’s Eve, check out the live video webcast on TimeSquareNYC.org, and Livestream.com/2010, and Facebook.com/TimesSquareNYC, and in the embedded video below.

Facebook’s live-streaming widget is live on these sites, so you can chat with your friends — or everyone — while you count down. Bigger picture, this is another example of the the live-streaming chat feature being live on a major media site; among many past examples, it was also available on CNN’s coverage of President Barack Obama’s inauguration and Michael Jackson’s funeral.
