We’ve been busy… busy adding new features to the Livestream Website & Service on a weekly basis. So busy in fact, that we haven’t been updating the Community on what we’re working on as much as we’d like. From this week forward, we plan on posting Product Updates to inform you of what’s new, what’s different, and what you can expect to see in the future.
Following our exclusive coverage of Facebook’s F8 Conference in San Francisco, we updated our Homepage and Channel Pages with several Facebook Social Plugins that easily allow you to share Livestream content through your Facebook Account and see which videos your Facebook friends are sharing.
“Like” button on Livestream Channel Pages
The “Like” button enables you to make connections to a channel page and share that content with your friends on Facebook in one simple click. If you’re already logged into Facebook, click the “Like” button to share it on your Wall. If you haven’t logged into Facebook yet, clicking the “Like” button will open a window where you may login via your Facebook Account.
“On Livestream” Widget
The “On Livestream” Widget can be found on all Livestream Channel Pages. This widget highlights six of the latest “likes” that your Facebook Friends have shared on Livestream.com. We believe it’s a great way to stay up to date with what your friends have been watching across the network.
Click a link to visit the channel your friend has shared.
The “Recommended” Widget can be located on all Livestream Channel Pages as well as the Livestream Homepage. This useful widget showcases the most popular Channels or Videos on Livestream that have been shared through Facebook by both friends and other users.
Livestream Premium Channel Owners can disable these features within the Livestream Account Center’s Configuration page if desired.
We hope you enjoy these new social plugin features. Stay tuned to our blog for information about upcoming features, events, and more.
