In the beginning of the year, Facebook did a lot of astonishing things to make things easier for it’s users, example like video calls, live stream, business advertisement, promoting of pages etc. This implementation has helped it’s users a lot.
It’s really interesting that Facebook is trying to wrap the year up with an immense implementation testing against next year with the “LIVE AUDIO” streaming service.
Facebook recently began testing a Live Audio streaming service that lets a select group of publishers broadcast audio messages on its popular social network, with plans to open it up to all of its users next year.
The Live Audio service could bring content like podcasts into Facebook News Feeds to listeners, which could be useful for the social network users in low-connectivity areas to broadcast more data-efficient media. Listeners can also ask questions and leave reactions in real-time during broadcasts.
The concept was further explained in the blog post;
‘‘From interviews to book readings, we’re excited about the layer of interactivity that Live Audio brings to both the broadcaster and listener. Just as with a live video on Facebook, listeners can discover live audio content in News Feed, ask questions and leave reactions in real time during the broadcast, and easily share with their friends.’’
Facebook is in partner by testing the live audio with BBC World Service, book publisher HarperCollins, British talk radio station LBC, and authors Adam Grant and Brit .
So get prepare for the upcoming features next year.
