Did you know that you can SCHEDULE Facebook Live videos so that people know ahead of time that you’ll be going live? Facebook also sets up a waiting are so you’ve got an audience ready for when you start. There’s also a reminder feature.
HOWEVER…this is apparently a feature only available to US users. Check out this video on how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2n9zmgt3_4
I’ve only seen US-based people doing this, but if you’re in the US, definitely give it a try. It’s a great feature.
