Facebook Will Release A New Live Coverage Feature
The feature will become a one-stop shop for posts, pics and videos published from the festival. It comes as part of Facebook’s Place Tips feature that was designed to bring relevant tips, photos and posts from your area to the top of your news feed. The Lollapalooza coverage, however, will be available to users not in the region as well.
Along with Periscope, Snapchat’s ‘Our Story’ feature and a new Twitter feature codenamed ‘Project Lightning’ (how cool is that?!), the new Facebook feature aims to connect users to real time events.
