Facebook continues updating and optimizing its features.

Not so much time has passed since the latest interesting Facebook proposals (the launch of the job search on Facebook). And recently Facebook developers have announced the latest update – the possibility to stream live video from laptops and desktop computers.

Until this update, people were able to use Facebook live video only on mobile devices.

Even more live streams

An inbuilt webcam will help you to start live broadcast on Facebook. You can also install special software for streaming. This will improve the quality of your streaming.
