Facebook Crossposting, StreamSpot Style: Simplified Syndication to Multiple  Pages

Posted by Michael Wilson on Mar 20, 2019 4:13:38 PM

One of the most attractive aspects of Facebook for someone managing an organization is the exposure it provides to reach current and prospective users where they already are on social media. It's a robust platform of millions of users ready to consume your content, so all that's needed to convert those users into viewers is 1.) identify your audience and 2.) drive them to your content. [Okay, that's a little easier said than done.] Thankfully, Facebook includes a ton of useful tools and features to help with this, including the ability to "crosspost." Recently, StreamSpot engineers announced they have developed an even better workflow for StreamSpot users to crosspost right from their  MyStreamSpot Portal, making the ability to syndicate to multiple Facebook pages super-simplified.

Multi-Platform Streaming

It has been said, "if you aren't everywhere, you're nowhere." This holds some level of truth in many industries, and the world of live streaming is no exception.

No matter what kind of content you produce, in most cases, you probably want people to see it. The most important step you can take in making that happen is putting your content where (and how) people want to see it.

Thanks to advances in modern web-video technology, your StreamSpot broadcasts play well on computers, tablets, smartphones, and more. Pretty much any device that can open a standard web browser these days can view a live stream. The days of third-party plugins are gone, and on the mobile front, dedicated apps are becoming less prevalent in favor of responsive, mobile-friendly websites.

It's easier than ever to provide coverage of your event to laptops, desktops, phone and tablets, all with one website. What's left?
