New features in Facebook

As the dominant platform. What Facebook publishes is a good sign of current trends. Two recent announcements from the company have caught my eye for that reason.

Tickets

You can now buy tickets right in the Facebook app. Ticketing apps have been around for years, but players like Dice are finding new ways to curate live music events and provide new experiences in ticketing. Facebook has the events so can it create an interface as good as the new third party players.

Live Streaming

One that I’m of course watching closely, even getting a mention at the BBC on the Beat event recently, live streaming has been rolling out for celebrities for a little while now. The power of Facebooks social reach really becomes clear when you see the response small artists get from using the platform. I’ll be watching closely to see how this and the Facebook video features fare in terms of impressions over time and how they’re used by DJs and artists.

Ben

Hi, my names Ben and I’m traveling around the world with my bike, my paraglider and my laptop. Along the way I’m sharing the highs and lows of the life on the road. And my picks of the best places to bikepack, enjoy freeflight and work as a digital nomad. Each week I share a new video update, city guide or live streams with other adventurers I’ve met along the way.
