Ustream's BFF App Lets You Stream Live Directly on Facebook
A new mobile app from Ustream called BFF (which stands for Broadcast for Friends) lets you broadcast live straight into your friends' Facebook news feeds. Explains The Verge, "When you tap the big 'Broadcast' button to get going the app first tests your network to make sure you have the bandwidth to stream video, then asks who you want to broadcast to — just yourself, your friends, or the general public. Choosing the latter two will add a post to your friends’ News Feeds that they can click to watch the stream, just like playing any other embedded video. The audience can then like the stream or comment on it; events that show up as notifications to the person doing the broadcasting. After the broadcast is over, BFF follows the Ustream model by leaving a persistent version of the recorded video in its place."
