The age of the personal live broadcast is upon us, with Facebook Live predicted to change the way we consume social media, interact, and learn.

New features set to be introduced shortly to Facebook live include 24/7 continuous streaming, the ability to skip to highlights of saved live video, and the introduction of graphics.

Michael Phelps introduced his newborn child Boomer to the world through Facebook Live, live interviews with Rihanna and Barack Obama were broadcast instantaneously through Facebook, and ‘Chewbacca Mom‘ amassed 141 million views when her Facebook Live video went viral.
