In the Facebook app, begin to compose a status as you normally would.
On iOS, a list of options will show up below the text field, tap on Live Video > Continue.
On Android, tap on Go Live > Continue.
Give your Live video a title (e.g. “Playing miniature golf!”) and set the level of privacy (friends, public, etc).Once live streaming is enabled, you’ll also see a live video icon (see image below). After clicking on it, you’ll be taken to a screen where you can write a description and select your audience before going live. Once you’re ready to start broadcasting, you’ll simply click ‘Go Live’.

If you want to broadcast from your computer, you’ll need to use an app. This can be a web app that runs in your browser (such as Facebook itself, or BlueJeans) or an app that runs on your Mac or PC (usually known as an encoder).

Give your Live video a title (e.g. “Playing miniature golf!”) and set the level of privacy (friends, public, etc).Once you begin streaming, an alert will be sent to your Facebook friends, notifying them of your stream. The top half of your screen will show what your viewers are seeing, with a control to switch between the front and rear facing camera in the top-right corner.The bottom half of the screen is where notifications of comments and new viewers will show up. During a stream, you can add filter effects to the video, switch between the front and back camera or enter comments in the text field at the bottom.

On an iOS device, you can also draw on the screen to illustrate or highlight an object to viewers. The drawing feature is missing from the Android version of the app (at least on my devices). However, Android users can send invites to specific Facebook Friends during a Live video, whereas the same feature seems to be missing from my iOS devices.
