How do I schedule a live video on Facebook?

To schedule a live video on your computer:
  1. Click What's on your mind? at the top of your Feed.
  2. Click more then click Live Video.
  3. Click Schedule Live Video Event in the left column.
  4. In the left column, select where you’d like to broadcast your live video (to your timeline, a Page you manage, or in a group).
  5. Give your event a name.
  6. Select the date and time of your live video.
  7. Select what privacy setting you want for your live video.
  8. Click Next.
  9. Click Upload Cover Photo or Choose Illustration to add a photo to your live video announcement. If you do not add a photo, the default will be your cover photo.
  10. Click Create Event in the bottom left.
When you schedule a live video broadcast, you automatically create two posts:
  1. An announcement post. The details of your upcoming live broadcast are published to your profile, Page or group as soon as you schedule your live video.
  2. Your live video post. At the scheduled date and time of your broadcast, a post containing your live video will automatically be published to your profile, Page or group.
