Hey everybody. Vickie Siculiano here, from Say WOW Marketing. Do you want to know if you should be using Facebook Livestream in your online marketing strategies? I’m going to show you in this quick video why I’m not going to be using it any longer. It’s 3 reasons and they’re pretty important, so it’ll save you a lot of time and effort. Stay tuned.
Reason number 1 is that your video is going to be flipped horizontally. When you download a Facebook Livestream video to your camera roll, it’s flipped 180 degrees horizontally. The text that appears in the background would be flipped and you’ll have to take it into a video editing software and flip it around unless you really don’t care that anything behind you, or yourself, is flipped horizontally. That’s another step you don’t really want to have to take.
Number 2 is that your video is also going to be shot in the portrait mode as the Facebook Livestream and will record in the Facebook app. Portrait video does not upload well to YouTube. It uploads, but the video will appear very small in the viewer’s screen. When you have one chance to make a first impression, you really don’t want a small video to do that. If you have the opportunity to do an HD one, like I’m doing right now.
Number 3 is that your video will also be poor quality because it’s going over wifi. Facebook is capturing your video over wifi, over your wifi, then their servers. It’s saving it. Then you’re downloading it, so there’s a lot of data interruption in all of that downloading. You really don’t want to have to send your video off somewhere, get it back and then upload it. You want it as crisp as possible. Do it right the first time. Get it in the camera and then share your video wherever you want, to repurpose that content. That’s the way that you want to save it. You want to save it as best as possible for your viewers, like this one is now.
