Creative Tools to Use in Facebook's Live Streaming

Live streaming in Facebook has now boomed. It enables you to interact with people that were unable to attend to a party or an event. Now even those that have to “miss out” don’t really have to miss it!

Facebook has added new interactive features such as reaction emoticons, filters and the ability to draw or doodle while broadcasting.

 

Live Reactions

Live Reactions enables your audience  to express how they feel. Like a typical photo, your audience chooses between emoticons (e.g. love, haha, wow, sad or angry). What makes it interesting is the way these emoticons pops on the screen in real-time. This way the broadcaster knows how his audience are feeling and reacting to his livestream.

“Live Reactions appear in real time and disappear quickly so broadcasters and other viewers can get a sense of how people are feeling at different points during the live video – it’s like hearing the crowd applaud and cheer,” Simo (Product Management Director) explained.

 

Filters

Get livelier with your broadcast through its Instagram-like filters. These enable you to personalize your broadcast while on air.

 

Doodle

Feeling artistic? Facebook Live lets you doodle while broadcasting. Pretty much the same as Snapchat where you doodle all you want to add some flavor and fun to your broadcast.
