Chang, McBeard: We always run into some kind of
minor issue, but that is expected with such a new
media format and working out kinks to a new
type of execution. Internet bandwidth seems to
be the most common issue because of the several channels the broadcast must go through.
Ignacia, Pro Watercross: Facebook Live distributes
content very reliably, but Facebook has a strict
copyright policy so if there are any copyrighted
songs played during the broadcast (even a slight
background sound from other audio sources
such as a PA Radio), Facebook would shut you
down immediately. This has occurred on a few
occasions while I was broadcasting and the PA
mic picked up an ambient song from a “boom
box.” Facebook identified it as copyrighted content and immediately shut down my stream.
HAS FACEBOOK LIVE
PROVIDED THE DESIRED BENEFITS?
Molnar, Twentyfourseven Films: Absolutely. I’ve definitely got 100% happy clients in the end, which is always what I want. For the Biffy Clyro stream, we
had 1. 2 million total views and about 100,000 simultaneous viewers. Even without the numbers,
the most important thing is a smiling client at the
end of it.
Brizuela and Puerta, King Jesus Ministry: Facebook Live
has definitely delivered the desired benefits. It
has brought live events to an online audience,
in a more interactive manner that has benefited us and our followers. Our total amount
of viewers in our largest event of the year was
158,000 unique viewers at the time we ended
