SOUTHERN CAMEROON: SIMPLE STEPS TO LIVE STREAM YOUR MARCH ON JAN 2

As denizens of former West Cameroon/Southern Cameroons prepare for the peaceful grand march tomorrow  Jan 2nd, 2017 it’s vital to learn these few steps on how to live stream your protest. Remember the English speaking Cameroonian from former British Southern Cameroon has come to a consensus to demand a two-state federation or the restoration of their statehood. These peace loving people have expressed their grievances as they feel cheated and marginalised. A majority openly confessed that the transition from federalism to the unitary state has got a hidden agenda to wipe out their very own identity as a people. This peaceful protest is aimed at demonstrate to the world that former west Cameroonians are dissatisfied with the union with East Cameroon Cameroon.

How to Use Facebook Live: A Complete Guide

So to get started, get out your mobile device and open up the Facebook app.

Step 1: Go to your own Facebook profile and open up the status bar by clicking facebook-write-status-update.jpg, as if you’re going to write a new post.

Step 2: Tap the “Live” icon, which looks like a human silhouette.

Step 3: Give Facebook access to your camera and microphone when prompted.

You’ll stop receiving these prompts after the first time you use it.

Step 4: Press the blue “Continue” button on the introductory page.

Don’t worry — pressing “Continue” won’t start the recording. The next few steps will be preparing your live video before you go live.

Step 5: Choose your privacy setting.

If you’re posting for a brand, you’ll probably want to make it public. But if you’re new to Facebook Live and want to test it out first, or want to see what something will look like, then switch the privacy setting to “Only Me.” You can find the “Only Me” option by clicking “More” and scrolling all the way to the bottom.

Step 6: Write a compelling description.

As with Periscope, you give your broadcast a description, which will show up on people’s News Feeds like a status update above the video. To get people to tune in, write an attention-grabbing headline and help them understand what your broadcast is about. Check out the example below from The White House’s live broadcast.

Step 7: Set up your camera view.

Before you click “Go Live,” be sure your camera’s pointing in the direction you want it to. The background of your setup screen will show you what your camera sees. If you want to change the camera view to selfie or vice versa, simply click the rotating arrows icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.

Note: The video will be a square, so it doesn’t matter whether you hold your mobile device vertically or horizontally.

Step 8: Click the blue “Go Live” button to start broadcasting.

Once you click it, Facebook will give you a countdown — “3, 2, 1 …” — and then you’ll be live. As soon as you start streaming, your live video will appear in your News Feed — and others’ News Feeds — just like any other post. (Note that Facebook does currently rank Live videos higher than other videos.)

Your broadcast can be up to 90 minutes long. Keep in mind that the longer you broadcast, the more people who are scrolling through their News Feeds on Facebook will stumble upon your post.

Step 9: Interact with viewers and commenters.

To keep your viewers engaged, encourage them to interact with your live video (which will help your ranking in others’ News Feeds). You can also interact with them both by speaking directly to them in your video and, if you want, by having someone else respond to comments from a desktop computer elsewhere.

Where can you see these comments? While you’re broadcasting, you’ll see the time elapsed on the top left along with the number of viewers, and comments will show up live on the bottom of your feed. They’ll appear in reverse chronological order, like on Twitter, so keep in mind that the earlier ones may be farther down.

Note: You can also block viewers during a live broadcast by tapping the profile picture next to a viewer’s comment and then tapping “Block.” You can unblock someone you’ve previously blocked, too.

Step 10: Click “Finish” to end the broadcast.

Once you do this, the video will stay on your Timeline or Page like any other video post.

Step 11: Save the video to your camera roll.

Once you finish your broadcast, you’ll be met with a screen similar to the one I’ve screenshotted below. Be sure to toggle the option to save the video to your camera roll so you have a copy of the original for safe keeping.
