Introducing New Ways to Create, Share and Discover Live Video on Facebook

Facebook has joined Periscope in enabling seamless live broadcasts. According to Brian Fitzgerald of the WSJ, "Facebook is using the Groups and Events pieces of its software to get more people to create and share video. Among the changes: users can now stream live video to select people such as family, instead of all followers, and live video can be folded into events. This will allow a parent to stream video from a dance recital to a small group, for example, while a celebrity can talk to followers from a concert stage."

Here are the details from Facebook.
