Facebook has become a social media ecosystem to capture moments of our day to day lives with various rich media elements. Right from pictures to videos, Facebook Live and Facebook Live Audio, we have routed a long way to express ourselves to our loved ones. The most recent addition to Facebook’s services is the FB Bandstand. (Bandstand the name stands for celebrity culture that Mumbai boasts of, conveying the true city spirit.) It is similar to ‘YouTube space’ that has been a revolutionary phenomenon for all the content creators around the globe.
The main aim of this is to educate and inform the artists, bloggers, celebrities & content creators about the use of Facebook Live while helping them connect with their fans and followers in real-time without any hassles.
