Remember how you used to call people to your home to watch a movie together? What if your friends or fans are in a different city or country? With Facebook Watch Parties that problem is solved! This feature is such a success that I thought it would be a good idea for me to let you know how it works in case you want to use it. If you are not familiar with what they are, let me explain. A "Facebook Watch Party" is a new way for people to watch videos on Facebook together in real time. Facebook users can simply click the "Watch Party" button in the post section of a Facebook Group, Page or profile. The user then selects a few Facebook videos, live or prerecorded ones, and the Watch Party begins. Your friends, fans and group members can watch and chat with one another in the same moment.
This is so awesome that today you are getting a double dose of this new feature. In the first video I share with you the watch party experience by showing you what it looks like with all the juicy details of how you can start your own watch party.
You will get to see video that was aired recently where Ross Brand from Livestream Universe and me talked about four live streaming apps: BeLive vs Ecamm Live vs StreamYard vs StageTen. If you missed that go back and definitely check that one out here.
I am so glad Facebook came up with these cool Watch Party features because it's really a unique experience. Watch Parties will deliver more opportunities for you to engage with your audience. If you are looking to share your knowledge, this new feature makes it possible. I highly suggest you give it a try if you haven't yet. Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel! Are you having a watch party or plan to go live during one? I would love to hear about your experience. Whether you love them or not, just email me or leave me a voice mail if you have any feedback or questions!
I'm always here for you.
