As I wrote about last week in my predictions for 2017 Facebook Live was right up there as signposted for major developments.

I don’t often do breaking news, but these updates are worthy of sharing. There are huge positive implications for church Facebook pages. The improvements are:

Go live from your browser

Page admins will be able to access FB Live in their browser. This will give many more options for different kinds of posts that were never available before. Check our some of my post ideas here.

Live contributor for pages

Previously to use FB Live you needed to be an admin of the page. Now you can assign specific individuals the ability to broadcast live from the page. This is a great idea for churches where your senior leaders may need to get some news out quickly, or go live with a devotional.

Video insights for profiles

If your senior leader has lots of followers on their personal profile they will be able to dig deep into some insights to see how their message is resonating with their audience. Nothing like some real feedback for those preachers!

There are more update announcements here on their blog.
