Are you using Facebook Live yet? (I hope so!)

It’s an amazing way to connect with your friends and your fans. And you can go live anywhere on Facebook!

You can go live from your Personal Page, your Business Page, a Facebook Group, or even inside a Facebook event!

While you can go live everywhere, I realize that it can be a little confusing how to go live from everywhere.  So, today, I’m breaking it down for you and showing how to go live from each different spot.  

(And if you’re one of the many who hasn’t gone live in a particular place because you aren’t sure how, you will be thrilled at how simple it is!)

Now, in every example here, I’m going live from my mobile phone.  You can go live from a laptop or desktop, but that takes some extra tech set-up and third-party apps you have to connect with Facebook.  That’s way too complicated for a non-techy like me.  

Going live from your mobile phone is easier because it’s designed for it.

Also, make sure your Facebook app is up to date.  If it’s not, you may not be able to go Live until you update it.

(Little Secret: These steps are the same steps you follow to post a regular post, a photo, or a video from your mobile device to anywhere on Facebook! Instead of clicking ‘Live Video,’ you’d simply select ‘Photo/Video’ or just begin typing!)

Go Live From Your Personal Page

When you first jump onto Facebook, you’ll see your News Feed. Click where it says ‘What’s on your mind?’ just like you’d start any other post.

Then select ‘Live Video.’ Super simple, right?

Go Live From Your Business/Fan Page

First off your Business Page and your Fan Page are the same thing, just words used interchangeably.

In this case, you’ll start off the same, go to your News Feed.  But this time, instead of clicking to write a status, click the ‘Search’ bar on the top of the screen.

Start typing in the name of your Fan Page.  Once you see it listed as an option, click it.  This should open to your Fan Page.  In this case, I’m going to my Fan Page, Jenn Possick.

Click where it says ‘Write Something.’

Want to know why I chose this event in particular?!

ANNOUNCING: I’m so thrilled to share with you that in a little over a week, I’m going to Japan!!!!!! AHHHHHHH! I get to go to Tokyo and Kyoto. (And ride the speed train to and from each place!)

And I actually do plan to help The Art of Being Kass go Live inside this event on the first evening in Tokyo! How fun is that?! Plus, I’ll be sharing pics along the way to my Business Page, Jenn Possick, so if you haven’t already, be sure to like my Page!

So there you go! How to go Live from anywhere on Facebook.
