On this episode of Social545, Carlos and Saba discuss the recent Facebook Live updates. With Live Streaming and Video content becoming an increasingly popular area of social consumption, every social network is out to win the race. We discuss how the Facebook Live update which includes event streaming, snapchat-like drawing features and video hub search will be able to compete with YouTube. While Facebook is the largest social network, Periscope (released in march of 2015) has been the dominant in mobile broadcasting within the past year. Carlos and Saba discuss how these updates will effect the live streaming space and their predictions for whats to come.
