In their continuing effort to grow video use, and especially live-stream on Facebook pages, the platform just added a way for you to have live-streaming guest posters on your page! That’s pretty cool if you want to grow your audience significantly through videos from like-minded people or pages.
To get started, you’ll need to give the person access and you’ll need to friend them first. Go to “Page settings” and select “Page Roles”. Add the name of the person you want to contribute and choose “Live Contributor” as the page role. That’s it! Easy peasy.
Broadcasting as a contributor
After they’ve given you access you can simply go to the page on your mobile device (Make sure you have the latest Facebook app) and select “Go Live”. As you would on your own page, create a description, check the settings for things like geolocation and click GoLive. As with your regular live-streams you’ll have the opportunity to save your video to your device or delete the video.
Page Admin monitoring
When someone you’ve given access to is live-streaming on your page, you’ll be able to monitor it the minute they go live. You can edit the description or end the broadcast if needed from the video detail screen.
