Live Stream your vacation with your Facebook Friends

Live Stream your vacation with your Facebook Friends

By Chris Guld, GeeksOnTour.com

Have you tried Facebook’s new Live Streaming feature yet? It is so incredibly easy! Instead of just posting a photo of your vacation day, you use your phone’s Facebook app and tap the button that reads “Live Streaming.” Instantly, you’re able to talk to your friends and they’ll see the beautiful mountain behind you and the stream running by your feet. This only works on a phone – not a computer. You start a post like normal, but then tap the option for Live Video. You’ll need to give the video a name, then tap “Go Live.”

It could even have more important uses like live streaming to your RV technician as you try to repair something while the technician is telling you what to do!?

SMILE!

Live Video is easiest on Facebook!

Instant Video – Online and Shared with Whoever You Want!

This is a one-way video – what your phone-camera sees is being broadcast from your Facebook page for anyone able to see your post. If you tell family or friends that you’re going to do this, they can arrange to be watching when you are live. Although they can’t be on camera, they can write comments that you will see instantly and you can respond on camera.

As soon as you end the LIVE streaming portion, the video is saved in place on your Timeline. If you’ve ever wanted to take a video to share with people but haven’t been able to figure it out – try this!

Here’s a fun one we did on our personal timeline that shows us on our kayaks, out in the ocean – about to go scuba diving.

    Does this eat up your monthly allocation from your mobile ISP?

      Yes! If you’re using a limited data plan as you live stream, you’re using quite a lot.
