You can now create live broadcasts and collages on Facebook

facebook for web has a new UR

Livestream is the new hit thing on social networks and that is why apps like the Twitter owned Periscope and Snapchat are popular. Facebook didn’t want to be left behind so they announced the ability to livestream to your friends and followers but it was only limited to verified accounts.

The company has now made it possible for people to share live video on Facebook but only for Facebook for iPhone users in the US. In the app, there is a separate icon for livestreaming purposes which when tapped lets you write a description of the live video and you can choose the people to share with.

In the process of livestreaming, you will be able to see the number of people watching your broadcast, comments and the names of the people who are tuned in. When the broadcast is over, it will be posted on your timeline so that people might watch it later if they missed it. There is also a subscribe button just like in YouTube so that you will be notified when the person is conducting a live broadcast.

Collages are an awesome way to quickly get a glimpse of the moments you captured in photos and that is why Facebook decided to introduce this feature. When you tap on the photo icon, the recent photos in your gallery will be organized by time and you can edit these collages by rearranging the photos. After editing, you can add a title for the collage and proceed to share. This feature is only available for iPhone users but will be rolled out to Android next year.
