Facebook reveals ‘live with’ feature
23rd May 2017
Instead of commenting on your friends’ live broadcasts, or reading their responses in the comments, you can now pull their own stream in on a new window and interact with them on screen.
Live With ultimately allows you to FaceTime your friends in a public setting, so you can chat/argue/debate in front of your whole feed.
This is pretty interesting, as according to Facebook Live videos draw more than ten times as many comments as regular videos, so the platform can capitalise on this by enabling users to rope their friends into their broadcasts to drive even more engagement.
