Why “Facebook Live” is the Winner?
Facebook Live has successfully won this race and is now leading the industry due to its following main features:
  1. The overall subscribers of Facebook are already more with 1 billion monthly active users. Whereas Twitter has only 300 million monthly active users. This gave Facebook Live advantage.
  2. Facebook Live is also easy to use & exists within the platform. No external App is involved for live streaming.
This gave lead to Facebook Live on Periscope but companies and brands know well that their presence on only 1 platform is not going to help them that is why they use both of them.
