Facebook Live Map Breaks Down The Borders

Facebook has an interactive map that shows you streams that you can tune into in real-time. It’s now easier to find on the desktop site.

Luigi Cappel’s insight:
TNWThis may not be news to you yet. I was shown it in the office last week. I’m not sure as yet how easy they make it to know what the topic of the video is. There is a big difference between watching someone walking their dog, or streaming from your favorite social media event, like The Next Web Conference in Amsterdam.

The big thing is that everyone is chasing video and everyone is offering solutions to deliver it on. So if you want to create your own show, it’s easy. The thing is how to target and engage an audience you want to share with. Whether it’s Instagram, Periscope, YouTube or Facebook Live. There are choices and features popping up all over the place.

So far the geospatial element looks cool, but just because King Bach has 7,400 live viewers as I write this , doesn’t mean it’s relevant to my interests. It’s a great start and I look forward to seeing how this develops.

From a news and entertainment perspective it is going to be a real challenge to news media.
