The Huffington Post is using live video to bring the news to millions of Americans, but that doesn’t mean the media doesn’t get a few extra tricks up its sleeve to give it a shot.
The HuffingtonPostLive.com has teamed up with Facebook to allow viewers to embed their faces onto the video feed.
While it looks pretty simple and doesn’t require any coding, there’s a lot to learn to get the most out of the system.
In order to get it working, the user needs to register for a Facebook Live account.
To do so, the video host must first log in with their Facebook account and create a new profile.
Once that’s done, the Facebook Live app will automatically show the videos to the user.
Once the video is loaded, it’s up to the viewer to decide how to share it.
When a viewer selects “share,” the video will be shared to their friends, who can then share it as well.
However, if a viewer chooses “unshare,” that user can turn off the feature and the video stream will be unplayed.
This means viewers can watch live webcam content from their own devices.
For those of you who don’t have a Facebook account, you can sign up for a free one here.
