How do I go live in a Facebook group?

Live lets you livestream events, performances and gatherings on Facebook. Viewers can watch from a phone, computer or connected TV. You can go live on Facebook from a profile, Page, group or event.
The privacy setting of the group determines who will be able to see your live video. Learn more about group privacy.

  • If you don't see a post option available in your group, it could be because the group admins don't allow this kind of post in your group. If you're an admin, learn how to manage this feature in your group.
  • In public groups, admins might require approval before you can post or comment for the first time. The approval process might involve answering participation questions and agreeing to the group rules. Only admins and moderators can see your answers. Once someone is approved as a participant, their future posts might still require admin approval if the admin has set up post approval.
