Re: Facebook Live
@freehe - Interesting the difference between scrolling through Facebook on a phone versus a computer. 98% of the time I'm on Facebook I'm on my phone. Typically the videos just start playing when they come into view on my screen, but without any volume. And I prefer that. They only become annoying on the rare instance that I accidently push the play button, and then my bigger annoyance is with the sudden onslaught of noise coming from my phone, not the milli-second it takes for me to get back to my news feed and turn the video off.

Re: Live Streaming Poll Results
@batye - I didn't even think about the ease of creating a fake Facebook page. Which would really, in my opinion, make Facebook Live a potentially very dangerous tool. Maybe I watch too many movies, but I can see someone choosing to create some kind of channel where they are actually killing people for the world to see. I just see it as giving people with bad intentions an audience, and some of them would thrive under that set of circumstances.

Re: Live Streaming Poll Results
@elizabethv, good points. I agree I don't think live streaming will get the viewers or results that the industry expects.

Facebook Live
I don't like Facebook Live because I want to focus on the task I am doing when on Facebook (reading posts, reading articles, etc.). I don't want to interrupted because my mouse accidentally moved over a live stream post. Then I have to stop when I am doing and hit the stop button on the live stream post. This is quite annoying.

Live Streaming
Live Streaming will grow as an industry and peak to a certain point and then flatten out like many other technologies and remain stagnant.

Network of Live Streaming
This is great for those who watch live streaming. I don't watch live streaming while it is happening. I like On Demand and like to watch content on my own time when I get ready.

Live Streaming may increase on social media but not at the levels projected. There are too many other variables and too much content to keep viewers focused on live streaming. Also, it uses too much data on smart phones, then there is the problem of buffering and other technical challenges such as sound issues, etc.

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

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.

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
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.
