Facebook will now let Pages schedule Live Video

Posted by @DanHinmon, Oct 19, 2016

Facebook is introducing official scheduling feature for Verified pages; users can be notified about videos up to a week in advance.

To be clear, this only applies to Pages, not verified users. You can schedule video in advance and build up hype for a video, essentially creating an audience before a stream even starts. It can potentially make the live video experience a bit more like watching live television.

Thanks to @Margaret_Marie for pointing us to this article.

This is great news. @Margaret_Marie it will obviously enhance our use of Fb live. I wonder if this will also enable us to embed the video code pre-event into Connect.
