Do you manage a Facebook page for your business or organization? If so, you may have heard that you have the ability to share live video content with your page’s followers through Facebook Live.
If you’ve yet to try Facebook Live for yourself, here’s how to start a livestream on your Facebook page from your mobile device.
Step 1: In the Facebook mobile application, go to your Facebook page.
Step 2: Tap the “Publish” button located under the page’s profile picture.
Step 3: Tap “Live Video” in the new window that appears.
Step 4 (may not be necessary): If you have yet to give the Facebook app access to your device’s camera and microphone, tap “OK” on the two prompts that appear. You may also be presented with a Facebook Live tutorial video, which can be watched or skipped.
Step 5 (optional): Tap “Describe your live video …” to add a text description to your stream.
Step 6: Tap the “Go Live” button to begin streaming.
Step 7: When you’re done streaming, tap “Finish” in the bottom-right corner of the screen to end the video.
When you’re finished streaming, you will have the option to post a replay of the stream to your Facebook page, or to delete the video. You will also be able to download the video to your own device. To save the video, tap the highlighted button in the image below.
