Pros: Facebook is the most important social network and being able to go live on fb has a great reach, the tool has worked wonderfully for me

Cons: If you don't have a strong connection you will suffer from lagging, blurry image, bad sound or a slow video, so be aware of this

Overall: Facebook live helps me reach great audiences with live broadcasts

Pros: You get to share your life moments real time. My friends were married in new zeal and were able to stream the intimate wedding at the top of a mountain live to all friends and family. Love the feature where you can comment and send messages as the video is streaming live. Also a great tool for branding and promoting rather than having to put a regular post. I feel like you get more views on the live video rather than your standard post.

Cons: The only thing I could foresee being an issue is that when you're live streaming, you can't make any edits or censor things. There may be certain things you didn't want to share that are now public to all and cannot be removed.

Pros: Facebook took something that was far out of reach for a lot of people due to cost of entry and made it not only free, but one of the easier processes to going live.

Cons: Features are limited, but free does preclude not much in the way of frills. There are ways to make it better such as incorporating monetary policies that would improve business involvement. I've yet to see it.

Pros: We use it mainly for sports events and I like that the rest from the team can check our activity when they are not around.
Facebook Live is really easy to use with simple design. You can go live with just one click!
The live chat is very handy and you can hide it if you do not need it.

Cons: I like when Facebook notifies me that someone is Live, however sometimes I receive a several notifications for the same person. Other than that I do not see any downsides of Facebook Live.

Pros: The ability to apply filters and drawings to videos in real time is great. I think the option that allows you to limit the access to the transmission or video is perfect, since there are personal transmissions, as well as business transmissions. To feel the protagonism and to see how the followers join the transmission is very satisfactory.

Cons: Facebook is a social network of wide magnitude, you must be aware of what is shared and published, I think it is important to follow and implement alerts, for the proper use of this wonderful and addictive tool.

Overall: Very successful application to transmit ideas, businesses, places and emotions to family, friends, business partners and acquaintances. Oh, that's great!

I utilize Facebook Live for a Facebook Group to broadcast various presentations.

Pros: It is easy to use. All you need at a location is your login and Wi-Fi and you are ready to go. It tells you who is actively watching your live feed, allows you to see who is commenting, and probably the best feature is then being able to post to Facebook so those who missed it live can still watch at anytime!

Cons: I do wish I could edit the videos before deciding to post the video because there are times when we need to edit info to correct it.

Pros: We used Facebook Live to stream a conference about software development in our company across the Canada. Its easy to use, and everyone can join it and watch it.

Cons: We should be able to use presentation tools like Powerpoint and stream it directly to facebook live. You must have a facebook acocunt and in some company, facebook is blocked.

Cons: It's facebook so it can be used by people and is not always secure. Depending on the connection on the otherside it buffers.

Pros: There's nothing more awesome than being able to share part of your world with everybody else. Facebook has done that not only with their app, but with facebook LIVE! You get to live broadcast then and there for the world (or just friends and family) to see! You can go live with everything, a feeling, first moments, last moments, and everything in-between. I myself am afraid to travel so when people go live from the destinations I want to see I am almost in tears of joy to see it first hand. The sights and the sounds. Truly an amazing feature.

Cons: I just wish it would have been around sooner. Imagine what we've missed! Now we won't miss a thing! Some people may have different opinions with some of the live videos that are posted. There are some very opinionated folks, but the beautiful thing is that you can choose not to see videos from those that offend you or that you may dislike for any reason.

Pros: When functional, this software works exactly as advertised. We are able to share videos in real time with our target audience and get some good participation and response in.

Cons: The contributor option does not work at all for our company. We have multiple potential contributors who are not page admins who we would love to have adding content who literally cannot do so despite the supposed existence of this feature. This has been an issue for a long time and no fix has been offered by Facebook of yet.

Pros: I like Facebook Live's ability to connect people anywhere in the world in real time. Relationships are becoming even more powerful in the world of business and networking and Facebook Live enables ease of connection. The ability to go live via Facebook Live will continue to enhance relationships for years to come.

Cons: Occasionally, Facebook Live experiences extreme lag time and screen freezing. Individuals leading a live session often cannot see comments from viewers, or viewers are unable to hear/see the leader due to lag. I have notice the lag time most when a larger amount of individuals are participating in a single live session.

Cons: Using this on an iPad can be very fickle. If you even tilt the iPad in the smallest degree, it will rotate your live video and then refuse to go back to the original positioning. I hope that they eventually fix this.

Pros:
That is one of the great advantages of Facebook Live. Users have the opportunity to react with one of the six available buttons, to comment and share your broadcast. But the important thing is that, as a brand, you respond and give importance to feedback.

Cons:
The most important thing that really needs to be highlighted is that the violations that may occur as a "The user", cause a little insecurity, to the use of the program

Pros: Facebook live is easy to use and convenient, mainly because (almost) everyone has a Facebook account already that they use to some extent. It's pretty easy to control who can watch what you're sharing live. Interacting with viewers is also easy to do. While we've primarily used it for our live corporate events that we want to broadcast, it's also good for personal use since you can go live from your phone.

Cons: Facebook has many different services, so the features included in Facebook Live may not be as extensive as another service dedicated solely to live streaming. Also, if you're streaming to your company/corporate page, Facebook Live may not cover the user demographic that your company targets.

Overall: Free and reliable live-streaming to our company Facebook page.

Pros: It's very easy, and live time notification to friends incase a live update. Also, we broadcast my video to targeted audiences from my friend's pool

Cons: I am not sure we can broadcast recorded videos, but even I don't know how to use recorded video feature. Reliable internet connection needed to broadcast a video.

Overall: Showing our occasions to friends and relatives in live time.

We've made a couple Facebook Lives in the Company and we were satisfied with the results.

Pros: Facebook Live is a great option if you want to interact in real time with your customers.
You get to show them your products and services and you can answer to some of the questions they may have in mind.

Cons: Based on my experience there will always be a delay on what your customers/followers are seeing from what you're currently transmiting, hence the delay in some of the comments you get during the transmition. DO NOT focus on that and keep the flow of your Live, otherwise you will keep coming back to what you were explaining 15-30 seconds ago.

Great tool to get information out to people.

Pros: Interesting because you can transmit live messages to your followers and interact with them because when you connect they leave messages for or against what you are expressing, it is used a lot by politicians, artists, entrepreneurs, students and journalists on radio programs and television, thus converting it into one of the multiplatform media, since it allows reaching a target audience of subscribers who do not like traditional communication.

Cons: It is necessary a good internet connection to not have problems when transmitting live and depending on the number of followers you have will be more effective communication, you must also evaluate the right time to broadcast live so that you have the most of possible followers and of course you should do some previous publicity to make your interaction with followers interesting.

Overall: Your live transmissions can be registered in your profile so that later they can be seen later.

Pros: I like the fact that this is so easy to use; just log in, and press LIVE...and you can even broadcast anything that is coming through your computer (we use it for church services). It immediately also clues your followers that you are going live.

Cons: I would like to see a feature where you could preschedule a "live" shoot and it would alert your followers....also it would be very cool if there was a call in # where people could listen to your broadcast if they can't log in....might make it more user friendly for the elderly or people while they are traveling.

Pros: That you can transmit live with a guest in vertical mode, so that your friend appears in a smaller image inside the video; or in horizontal mode, where your friend appears next to you. During the transmission, you can also invite different friends to join you.

Cons: Everything I really like is excellent, since it is a tool to play video in real time. You can broadcast live for a group or event. When you join a group or event, either on mobile devices or on the desktop, you can choose the option to post on it and easily start a live broadcast, which will only be available to those who are part of the group.

Overall: The benefits that are acquired with Facebbok Live is that it is a real-time video playback tool, you can transmit from your computer; you can create temporary transmissions; and you can also broadcast live for event; it's excellent

Pros: One of the biggest attributes of Facebook Live is the possibility that it gives us to communicate via streaming with the users to whom we are going. Social networks displaced the traditional media when it comes to disseminating audiovisual content and thanks to this software, from my work we can interact in real time with the people to whom we want to direct our messages.

Cons: One of the few weaknesses that Facebook Live presents is the need for a good internet connection to function efficiently. Sometimes when we transmit from the street there are some failures motivated by the lack of equipment that emits Wi-Fi signal because we work with the data package offered by our telephone operator.

Overall: This software has generated bonds of trust and fidelity between our company and users, since being a tool that allows us to communicate in real time, there is an incredible proximity between them and us as a direct channel in which we exchange points of exchange. view. The most important thing for our team is to have the opinion of our users, which undoubtedly makes us grow as a company and thanks to Facebook Live we are achieving this.

The way how you can manage to see or not the comments is a great option. As a video streamer, this service allows to broadcast instantly to viewers or friends in your facebook feed,.

Cons: I dislike the fact that for doing a live stream you have to enter the Facebook app instead of having a Facebook live app. Sometimes the app clutters and takes time when something interested is happening, so by going directly to the app, this could be avoid.

Cons: Going live on Facebook doesn't have any con per se, but you should consider that someone might not use Facebook, or isn't used on following live videos on social networks. Also Facebook is very strict about the contents you share on videos. Be sure to follow all their specifications to prevent the video to be censored (e.g. copyright infringiment etc)

I use Facebook Live to promote events, and post general "fun" videos. I love that I never have to worry about the length of the video. I also love that our followers can communicate live with us throughout the filming of the video.

Cons: It took us awhile to figure out how to initially do Facebook Live but once we did it was easy to operate. Our church is in the middle of nowhere and has poor wifi and Facebook Live has never failed to work well. We have had almost no issues with Facebook Live!

Pros: I like the app is very easy to manage and to have direct communication with family, friends and coworkers all over the world, the quality of the sound and the image are amazing, and you can manage your contacts easy and the broadcasting works perfect.

Cons: It consumes a lot of data of my cell phone, so every time I have to be connected to the app I have to be linked to a wifi connection to save the data of my cell phone, because most of the time is not enough for this app.

Pros: We love the functionality and features of Facebook Live. It's hard to go wrong with live video on the worlds largest social network in the world.

Cons: New features seem slow to roll out. Otherwise, this is one of the best, if not the best option for hosting live video with incredible reach.

Overall: Great features on a large social network

Pros: What I like most is that you can see what happens live and the messages sent by other people. I really like social interaction. The ability to connect with several people at once, be famous you admire, events that you can not attend or simply communicate with family members who live long distance and in some way be present and share with them through the technology

Cons: what I do not like very much is that in order to enjoy a good live you must have a very good connection to the internet, otherwise, it stays stuck, however I think they are details that can improve, nothing like living something through a screen

Overall: as I said before is an update so useful, so close to the present that we live today, where we can somehow be sharing and live a bit of an experience of another person, as it can be of some famous that we admire, of events which is difficult for us to attend, and not miss special moments of your relatives who are long distance, there is no better progress in this life than to use technology in a good way

Great feature within the Facebook platform

Pros: Super easy to use and allow viewers to get real-time interaction with you. It definitely allows a closer connectivity with people when you use this feature.

Cons: As with most live video software, if you have the slightest issue with connection, it seems your video will be a little sluggish. Also, the fact that it is within the Facebook platform means you're limited with functionality and features that you may find in other live streaming platforms since Facebook was not designed just for live streaming.

Pros: We've been using Facebook Live for just over a year. The ability it's given to broadcast live from our organization page has greatly expanded our online viewership and viral impact.

Cons: It would be nice to have more robust embed options for incorporating the FB Live experience into other websites.

Arguably the most useful Live Streaming app out there

Pros: Integrates seamlessly with the Facebook platform, useful features like allowing people to express emoticons or type to the person livestreaming
Great for company meetings where everyone can have a say without interrupting

Cons: Definitely a lot more features could improve it in the future. Webchat features like the ability to dial in, do screen sharing, or do mouse control sharing would be incredibly useful

I use Facebook Live to share live streams with friends and family.

Pros: It is so easy to use all you need is the Facebook app installed on your mobile device and you just click the icon at the top of the screen. I play music in a band and we go live sometimes to share our band practice or during live shows. It allows people in different cities/states to watch us play music even though they were unable to attend the live event.

Cons: People have told me that they don't always get the phone notifications when we go live even though they have them enabled.

Overall: The ability to share my experiences with people across the globe.

Pros: Simple select the live button and you are away with broadcasting live. A very simple feature to use and very quick.

Cons: As you have gone live it removes the option to do any post film edit when sometimes you may need to either take some of the recording out or make the quality better.

Average at best... I think there are better solutions out there

Pros: The availability and reach of Facebook Live is one of it's more attractive features. You can automatically build an audience and promote things via your social media networks. So the convenience of not building a specialized audience and having access to a large reach is definitely advantageous.

Cons: I honestly don't feel like the quality is that great. You have to rely HEAVILY on your internet connection and even when you have a good connection, it can be grainy or glitchy more often than I prefer. In addition to that, I prefer to target an audience that specifically needs the products and services I'm promoting.

For a business it's very great to interact with customers

Pros: Facebook Live gives our company the opportunity to interact with customers easy! We are able to answer questions on the spot and help customers ASAP.

Cons: Facebook users (not realistic customers) can easily insult our facebook users and especially when we are streaming a live video.
