Live Streaming Poll Results
You would think that the it's a game change changer would have more than 30% with the technology that is available today.

I think it's interesting the one question got zero responses. I can't say I'm surprised, however.

Re: Live Streaming Poll Results
Facebook is certainly making a push for live video to be a big part of its platform. 

You can see this in the marketing dollars the company has been spending. Just yesterday, I saw a bus stop ad for Facebook Live video. User-generated content is going to be really good for the company's bottom line.

Re: Live Streaming Poll Results
Facebook Live is definitely huge, but I'm not the fan I once was. A lot of my friends use it for their MLM jobs, which is annoying. But aside from that I've been seeing stories about a woman who died while using Facebook Live, and the viewers just continued to watch her literally die in front of them, and no one contacted emergency services to help. Recently, an 18-year-old mother live streamed taping her two-year-old to a wall while she explained that you don't need to beat your kids. Not to mention the teenagers that beat up the special needs kid on Facebook Live. Apparently people seem to think it's a good idea to commit crimes while live streaming. It just boggles my mind, and I really just think it should go away. But I doubt that will happen.

Re: Live Streaming Poll Results
@clrmoney - I suppose in the aspect that Facebook Live has caused people to put questionable content online - even more questionable than had been on there previously, I think in the end the most it is going to be used for doesn't really "change" the game. Though I would imagine that phrase would mean something different for all of us. Some news stations have been using Facebook live for polls, which I think is an interesting way to make the audience a more active part of the story. But I don't know that It will end up making more people watch the news, or even feel more involved in the broadcast.

Re: Live Streaming Poll Results
@elizabethv for me facebbok is coin of both sides - good and bad... as on internet you could become anyone... to setup fake profile on facebook - you just need a burner phone with few cents on it to get conformation sms to activate the page... for me it a bit sad reality...

I think we'll see that with any form of communication. Kids would prank call when there were no mobile phones and social media and abusive calls were not unheard of. Much of that nastiness is now on social networks. I think you have to address these issues as you go along, though I agree, sound and visuals make this much more visceral than texts or even phone calls.

Re: Live Streaming Poll Results
I'm a bit biased for live streaming now because I just wrote an article about its adoption for marketing.  It's possible that it will prove to be a passing fad, but for now it looks like the trend is really hot and will have enough momentum to keep going for a few years. Every day you hear about more and more events being streamed live. Just today Tech Crunch ran this: https://techcrunch.com/2017/01/23/twitter-partners-with-dick-clark-productions-to-live-stream-more-red-carpet-pre-shows/

Re: Live Streaming Poll Results
@Ariella I think it's really interesting to see what Facebook is doing here. They paid Steelers WR Antonio Brown a six figure sum to use the Live platform, and he was ostracized for using it in what was supposed to be a private situation. I expect to read about more of these over time as Facebook wants traffic from this product.

@dcawrey FB is pushing it strongly, and there are other live stream video channels emerging, as well.
