Facebook starts rolling out live video streaming to everyone.

Playing catch up: Facebook turned on live video streaming for a small subset of its US-based users on iPhones, bringing a live video broadcast button to their status update form. — Reuters LOS ANGELES: In an attempt to take on Twitter’s Periscope, Facebook is starting to give all of its users the ability to broadcast live video to their friends and followers.

It has previously allowed public figures to stream on their pages, and has shown live video of events like presidential debates and question-and-answer sessions with chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg. Live video streams automatically appear in their friends’ Facebook news feeds, and broadcasts that have concluded are saved in the timeline like any other video. The amount of video on Facebook has skyrocketed in the last two years, with 8 billion daily views on Facebook and more than 500 million people who are watching daily, the company said on its earnings call.
