Facebook launches live broadcasting for iOS users in the U.S.
In order to slowly work the new feature into Facebook's functions, at first only celebrities, VIPs and other public figures have access to it. The company also has a game plan in mind to overtake Periscope. Mobile users spend more time on Facebook than on any other app. By keeping the live broadcasting service as part of Facebook instead of spinning it off like Twitter did, Facebook feels that it can quickly surpass Periscope. But considering the head start that Periscope had, this might not be so easy to accomplish.
Addiionally, Facebook launched today a new feature that allows users to post multiple pictures and videos in tiles that it calls Collages. It will allow users to tell stories using pictures and video. Tiles can be re-sized and re-ordered to emphasize certain images or videos.
