Facebook’s interactive map lets you discover live videos from around the world

Facebook has now introduced a new, interactive map for its Live video feature. Basically, with the newly launched ‘Live Map’, one can discover live broadcasts from all over the world! Up until now, the only way one could view live streams was if they would appear on the Newsfeed or in the notifications tab.

According to a report by Engadget, the interactive map should help fans of live videos find new broadcasters. Each of them is represented by a blue dot, and users can open the stream by clicking on it. The larger the dot, more viewers are watching the video at that given time.

To access the new map, users need to head to the ‘Live Video’ app which is available on the left navigation bar on the timeline. It will show users where the video stream originated, and also, where it is being viewed.

The live-streaming feature by Facebook made a debut early this year and is currently available in more than 60 countries, according to the company.
