Facebook Live Audio!?

As like most social media platforms in 2016 Facebook put a lot of time and effort into “LIVE” broadcasting. As of now the social media platform is launching LIVE AUDIO for a select few publishes and content creators with plans to open up the feature to a wider audience in 2017.

The audio only service could bring podcasts into peoples news feeds just like live video does for video. This could potentially help those in areas where broadband and internet speeds is incredibly poor or to those that require less heavy data efficient media.

Facebook sees LIVE AUDIO for other uses such as semi professional stage for events like book readings and interviews coupled with the services comments section this could create incredible amounts of creative content. As of yet the audio only live service is only open to the BBC World Service, Talk Radio’s LBC (Leading Britains Conversation) Book Publisher Harper Collins and authors Adam Grant and Britt Bennett.

Android users can keep listening to a LIVE AUDIO broadcast whilst doing other things though iOS users have to stay within the Facebook App.
