Facebook continues to give Pages more video features. After the announcement of new video metrics last week, the platform now allows to publish live video broadcasts on multiple pages.

The feature has already been tested by World Surf League, which has posted a recent live video on its main Facebook page, a sponsor page, and a page of its athletes. The live video broadcast on all three pages resulted in more than 1.5 million views, 4,500 shares and more than 538,000 minutes of viewing time, the league reported.

In addition to the post-publication feature, Facebook offers publishers and creators who frequently use the Live API a persistent stream key with an encoder for their live stream.

"This means that if you're a regular publisher or creator, now you just have to send a feed key to the product teams, and the flow key of a page is permanent, it can be sent before firing, "says Labunka. The feature is intended to make the task easier and less time consuming for teams to collaborate on when producing live video.
