Facebook Live is bringing more openness to the political process- Mark Zuckerberg
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was happy with how Facebook Live is bringing more openness to the political process which he even listed some of the Live videos of Members of the Congress.
Mark Zuckerberg : “Something interesting is happening with Facebook Live that’s bringing more openness to the political process.
Last night Members of the US Congress held a sit-in to demand action on gun violence. The House went into recess, their cameras were turned off and people could no longer see the sit-in. That’s when 19 Members of Congress decided to go Live on Facebook and share what they were doing directly with citizens. As of 10am ET, those broadcasts have been watched more than 3 million times — and that number is still growing. TV networks like C-SPAN have even broadcast Congressman Beto O’Rourke‘s live feed because they couldn’t get a live feed of their own.
Live is unfiltered and real. It’s a way to share anything you want with the world using just your phone. And it’s bringing us moments we wouldn’t see otherwise — from birthday parties to locker room celebrations to late-night sessions in the United States Capitol.”
