Tech Coffee Break – Nov. 7, 2016

Katie Wirt led this conversation on Facebook Live video streaming. Kelli Armbruster, Mary Berg and others shared their experiences with Facebook Live. We also discussed possible uses for Facebook live in Extension. Ag Communications has published an article with more information about using Facebook Live.

Katie shared the Facebook site where you can see all the Facebook live videos currently broadcasting across the nation, https://www.facebook.com/livemap.

Kelli shared some lessons learned from the first Facebook Live video done on the NDSU Extension Service Facebook page, including the need to use an external microphone when streaming using your smartphone's rear-facing camera.

Both Kelli and Mary recommended having an extra person to monitor and respond to comments, especially if the video presenter has other information to worry about getting across.

Acacia Stuckle said she used Facebook Live to stream a livestock sale 2 of her 4-H'ers were involved in. She had over 300 live views.

Kelli shared some of the data about your Facebook Live videos available through Insights on your Facebook Page.
