People are always on the look for fun and entertaining content to look at and share with their networks; therefore, it’s important to create compelling content that they can relate to.
Interact with your audience
Similar to Twitter, Facebook Live is all about generating a conversation and getting your audience to stick with you. When planning your content, consider giving the audience a reason to participate, either by asking their opinions, asking them to vote or to guess something, or rewarding the winners at the end.

Similar to news jacking, timing your Facebook Live is crucial. In order to grab a global audience, you need to consider not only the news cycle, celebrations or special dates and events but also the different time zones.
