OK so if you spend anytime at all on Facebook, you are probably quite aware of the new trends with Facebook Live Videos. I personally haven’t mustered up anything exciting to tell anyone that I wanted to you Live Video with, but maybe someday soon. It is a great way to connect with your friends and audience and them with you… I know many who love to do live video feeds for just about anything they can think of, which sometimes leaves you scratching your head wondering what they were thinking, and then those who have to be all polished, lipstick, makeup, perfect hair to go live and those that come on without a care in the world and bedhead! 🙂 I love them all.
But for many they want to connect, and are quite comfortable doing so say maybe on a conference call with a large group, or even a webinar where their “hidden” behind the slides, or even a podcast, but they just aren’t comfortable with video.
Well with the newly released Facebook live Audio you won’t have to worry about that, you’ll be able to upload a photo and and go live with just your Audio and no video, heck the photo doesn’t even need to be your face if you don’t want, it could be your branding, a backdrop, anything you choose. That will definitely open up some new possibilities in growing your brand and business if you’ve been leary of doing a Live Video Feed on Facebook. Who knows, maybe you start out with audio and if that becomes comfortable you’ll unknowingly grow and branch out onto Live Video!
So Facebook Live Audio has been released out to a select few such as the BBC but the feature will slowly be released to others in 2017 such as those with verified profiles. So if you like the audio and aren’t into video, now is the time to start brainstorming on how you’ll be able to utilize the new Live Audio to talk to your audience and build your brand!
Anxiously looking forward to trying it myself!
