He added:


Live is like having a TV camera in your pocket. Anyone with a phone now has the power to broadcast to anyone in the world. When you interact live, you feel connected in a more personal way. This is a big shift in how we communicate, and it’s going to create new opportunities for people to come together.

Here are some of the new upgrades in Facebook Live:

  • You can now go live in Facebook Groups and Event pages.
  • You can see live reactions and replay comments and can tag your friends as well.
  • The new Facebook Reactions will fly across the screen in real-time, very much like the hearts used in Periscope.
  • Five new filters that help adjust lighting. Plus, Snapchat-like doodling effects.
  • A Live Map of current broadcasts around the world.
  • Live Video Audience Metrics will let you monitor how much viewership your stream got.
  • Payments to select news publisher partners in exchange for broadcasting on Live instead of their own sites.
