  • Once streaming has begun, it has nothing to do with host/co-host bandwidth as host/co-host only triggered the start session, which starts the streaming as well.
  • For every mapped session, a new post is created and streamed.
  • Recommended not to take any break for a session that is getting streamed. If the break gets extended for more than 2 mins, a new post will be published on your Facebook page/profile.

  • If the session got ended by the event host, the Facebook live stream would stop immediately.

  • It is advisable not to use any copyrighted content while streaming as it may block your live streaming by the Facebook platform.
