Since rolling out Facebook Live to people and publishers around the world, we’ve seen incredible adoption and engagement with the new format.
We’ve been inspired by the creativity we’ve seen so far, and with this bi-weekly series, we’ll highlight some interesting Facebook Lives from the past two weeks.
Here are 10 standout live videos:
1. Mark Zuckerberg hosted the first-ever Live Q&A from space, speaking directly with astronauts Tim Kopra, Tim Peake and Jeff Williams, who are all currently living and working aboard the International Space Station.
2. BuzzFeed shared a live video featuring Chewbacca Mom, Candace Payne, talking to their editor from the Facebook HQ parking lot.
3. The View posted their first live “After The View” segment to take questions from fans. The show plans to go live regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays moving forward, featuring Joy Behar and co-hosts in a relaxed discussion of hot topics, questions from the studio audience and social media, and the occasional celebrity pop-in.
5. Liz Kotalik, a local journalist with Fox 10 Phoenix, captured live video from Desert Canyon Middle School of their choir to watch them whip and nae-nae. As of today, the video has more than 15 million views.
7. The Verge went live from a drone over Croatia to give a bird’s eye view of the Adriatic Sea at sunset.
8. The team from Recode used Live to set the stage about what they were hoping to hear from industry leaders at their Code Conference.
