  1. Once a scheduled video was created with FB Live, from via personal account, an announcement post should appear on one's personal wall. Once the event started, the live video becomes available. This announcement feature, as of a few days ago does appear to be available. What happened?

  2. Hi, thanks for the explanatory video!
    I have a question for which I couldn't find the answer, not even in your video.
    How do I see how many people are watching my live streaming? I don't mean the names (I think that is not an option on anyway), I mean the number of people who are watching me in that moment.
    Just to make sure I am not talkign to myself.
    I went live today on my business page and couldnt understand whether somebody was watching or not. The only way was if they commented ont he streaming.

  3. Thanks very much for this descriptive video. Do you know if there is a way to go live using facebook producer for audio only lives ? And is this only available on our phones or can audio lives be accessed through desktop also? Thanks.

  4. just one questions actually. I was told that if I go live in a FB business group I won't see any comments? Is that true? In which case I would rather set up a group in my personal FB profile?

  5. Wow! I learnt so much here! Best ever video, straight to the point, no blablabla but 100% amazing and useful information. I almost didn't watch it because the length of the video did put me off but now super happy I did!

  6. I went live today but couldn't see my audience comments! I was only able to see them after I was done with the live stream, any reason why I couldn't see them? They were posting on real time. It's a bit frustrating as I was asking questions and they were answering but I couldn't see it
