During the recent Republican and Democratic conventions, media and journalists from around the world turned to Facebook Live to communicate important moments and share new angles with their audiences. From Cleveland to Philadelphia, outlets used Facebook Live to broadcast historic speeches and unique perspectives from inside the convention center and around it. Over the course of both conventions, this culminated in over 8,500 hours-worth (356 days) of Facebook Live content, and these videos were viewed 120.3 million times.

Below are a few examples of Facebook Live videos created by the media on the ground at the conventions:
