: Can't find how to do Facebook live on MBP

Sep 11th, 2017, 04:20 PM
I tried searching the forum but no luck. Maybe it's buried. Anyway, I have to make a FB live video and YouTube how-to is also not helping.

Do I need an app to do it on the MBP?

Also, I couldn't see where in FB nor find out by searching, how to actually start a FB live session in the group where I have to do it.

My research skills have failed me :-(

Can you help?

How do I go live on Facebook? (https://www.facebook.com/help/1636872026560015)

....but that looks like Mobile-only (iOS and Android)

This page (https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/facebook-live-guide) says you can do it from the Desktop, but only as Admin of a page...

How to Broadcast on Facebook Live via Desktop

If you're an admin or editor of a Facebook Page for your brand, you can also broadcast live from a desktop computer. This isn't as spontaneous as broadcasting from a mobile device (and, obviously, isn't as mobile), but this could be a good option for filming more static broadcasts.

I seem to be without the button on my Newsfeed. Why wouldn't I have the button? Ack.... this is annoying. ....sigh...

Thanks for the links. I'll check them out in more detail.
