Today, Facebook launched their newest product, Facebook Places, on their Facebook Live channel.
Places helps users share where they are, where their friends are, and to discover new places around them. With features like notifications when friends are near and integration with partners such as Gowalla, Foursquare, Yelp and Booyah, the product provides a whole new layer to the experience of sharing places.
The Facebook Live channel, with Livestream as its official live streaming partner, serves as the central online space to hear Facebook announcements, watch press events, take part in live chats with Facebook engineers & special guests and to watch the annual f8 developer conference. It also incorporates Facebook’s real-time Live Feed technology to facilitate interactions between the viewing audience and the speaker.
Livestream CEO Max Haot had this to say regarding the launch of Facebook Live:
“We are proud to be the official live streaming partner for Facebook Live and to help Facebook extend its events at Facebook HQ to the broader online community.”
