Did you know that you can now stream live videos on Facebook for everyone to see what you are currently doing? The said feature came out first last August 2015 for verified pages and later was released to public.

By visiting https://www.facebook.com/livemap/, you can now live stream videos uploaded on Facebook all over the world. See those blue dots on the map? Those are live videos in which you can view. Currently, not much are using the said feature in the Philippines but in Thailand, several users are already into it.

Though in our opinion, we are a little concern about this feature as everyone will know what you are currently doing and where you currently are. This may be beneficial to some, especially for news reporters and such but when abused, it could lead to a disaster.

Do you think that this Live Video streaming would be a big hit for Facebook? Share your thoughts by commenting below.
