By expanding this service, Facebook brings more options for all the users who wish to go live directly through a webcam.

Gamers and gaming companies can also use this platform to stream their games and engage the players. The company also says that one can help your friends or followers by providing some how-to guides. One can also add some titles, texts, on-screen graphics, and overlays to make a video fancier.


Providing this option in desktop, it looks like Facebook is competing with other old services like YouTube. Though it may not be able to provide attractive contents right now, it may soon appear as a cutting edge, if Facebook restricts on the content type to go live.
