Do you enjoy watching live streams on Facebook from your favourite Pages? Have you wondered how you could make sure that you receive a notification whenever that Page goes live? You might have noticed that that you don’t always receive a notification and that is probably as you have not customised notifications for the Page. In this article you will learn how to do this both on desktop and on mobile so you can join a live stream promptly and interact in real time.
How To Turn On Notifications For Facebook Live Streams from Facebook Pages On Desktop
You can find the details in the video below or follow the screenshot tutorial under the video. Find the video here on YouTube.
Firstly go to the Page that you are interested in and make sure that you have ‘Liked’ the page. To turn on Facebook Live notifications from pages on desktop click on the ‘Following’ tab.
You can then determine what you want to see first in the News Feed – you can leave the setting as ‘Default’ or click on ‘See first’ – note there is a limit to the number of Pages you can add to the top of your News Feed and you will be notified by Facebook if you reach this limit when you look to add another Page with this setting.
Then click to the ‘Notifications’ settings and change the Notifications for posts and live videos – in the deatult settings these are usually set to you receiving details of events and live video notifications are turned off.
Turn on Facebook Live video notifications by clicking to receive notifications for ‘All Live Posts’. Remember to click ‘Done’ to save the setting.
You can then go back to check your settings have been saved by navigating back to the ‘Following’ tab.
Remember to head over to my page at Facebook and update your notification if you want to get an update for my Talking Social Business Live streams and to the Live Stream Insiders show page if you want to recieve live notifications for my weekly show.
