The number of social media users who follow livestreams has increased. With this in mind, you can broadcast yourself (and your speakers) directly on social media.

Some of the best examples of social media platforms which support livestreaming are:

Facebook Live is available for all Facebook users. It is mostly used for broadcasting videos from events, and for user mobile broadcasts (from conferences, events, or gatherings). 

Twitter’s Periscope offers a broadcast solution to assigned users. Some of the most popular videos on the Internet come from this service. 

TikTok offers the option to use livestreams for users who have more than 1,000 followers. Moreover, TikTok introduced an option for monetising livestreams through ‘virtual gifts’, which serve as virtual tokens that can be exchanged for money.

These platforms offer the possibility of going live in a matter of minutes. Here’s how.
