What is Facebook Live? • A live video stream on Facebook • Gives you the ability to go live on your Facebook (personal or business) page and in Facebook groups – on the spot • Offers live content will draw people who might not otherwise spend time on your Facebook page or platform. #DTCCSMC2017 @LisaLFlowers
  5. 5.

It’s better if it’s NOT. #DTCCSMC2017 @LisaLFlowers
  6. 6. Why Facebook Live? MORE Reasons! • Users can interact instantly with your content. • When they join your live stream, they can immediately participate in the running commentary – immediate interaction! • Users can communicate with other users • Talk about (your) products, services and other key content that you want them to engage with. • Your AUDIENCE is already there. • It’s FREE and EASY! #DTCCSMC2017 @LisaLFlowers
