Which has actually been available to Facebook Gaming streamers for quite some time and was added to Instagram Live in March.
But now you also have the same ability on Facebook Live broadcasts, providing another way to manage your Facebook interactions in a more integrated and dynamic way, as well as the added possibility of assigning a moderator who lives, for example, in another state, or another country, through the app’s allocation tools.
Because, really, you could add a moderator to your live streams forever, having a friend or co-worker handle that item while you present on screen. But this option adds a systematic and coordinated aspect to the process, which will enrich your management options.
As Facebook explains:
“Community managers moderate using their personal profiles, can enable a community moderator badge visible to other viewers, and moderate streams without direct permissions or admin access to your page.”
So it’s more official and transparent, which could help improve engagement in your feeds.
If you’re a regular Facebook Live user, you may also need to update your settings.
“Roles with access to moderator-level tasks can no longer perform live stream moderation and will need to be invited as a community manager. »
Other than that, the process will provide more capability to manage your broadcasts, which should open up more options in your process.
