The Do's and Don'ts of Facebook Live: What to embrace, what to avoid when livestreaming

As you get comfortable with Facebook Live, it's time to start experimenting with streaming at different times, locations and events! Below are a few of our top "do's" and "don'ts" so you stay ahead of the curve without turning off your audience (or missing a big deal).

Do: Set your phone on airplane mode, but keep wifi on

Make sure you won't be interrupted by a call or the Ding! Ding! Ding! of emails and text messages by setting your phone to airplane mode. In this mode, your wifi will be automatically disabled, so reset your connection before opening Facebook to start streaming.

Don't: Livestream when you're expecting an important call

Of course, if you're in multiple offers or waiting to hear back from an inspector, you shouldn't be in airplane mode. Look at your inbox and assess your day's schedule to ensure that you won't miss a critical call by turning off your inbound calls for 10-15 minutes.

Do: Look at the lens on the camera

Don't: Look at yourself

This is critical! Make sure you follow "selfie rules" when live streaming. That is to say, look at the camera lens and not at yourself. It may seem weird at first, but it will appear best for your viewers on the other side of the screen.
