Please make note that anyone can visit the OLPH Facebook page and view our Live video on our public feed by clicking the following link: https://www.facebook.com/olphchurch

If you want a more efficient way of tuning into Facebook Live videos from your desktop, you have two options available to you.

1. Use the Navigation Panel

The most common way of accessing Facebook Live videos is to use the dedicated link in the navigation panel on the left-hand side of the Facebook news feed.

You will find the link—titled Live Video—in the Explore section. You may need to click on Show More to reveal it.

Unfortunately, it seems there is no longer a way to pin your most used links from the Explore menu to the top of the left-hand panel.

 

2. Use the URL

You can save time and head straight to the Facebook Live page from anywhere on the web by entering the service’s URL in your browser’s address bar. The URL is facebook.com/live.

It will take you to the same page as using the navigation bar method described above.

Whichever of the two methods you choose, you will be presented with a map of your region. Each blue dot represents a live video.

To turn on notifications for Facebook Live, click on the small arrow in the upper right-hand corner of your Facebook homescreen, then head to Settings > Notifications > Edit and toggle Live Videos to On.

Note: Perform the reverse steps if you want to silence Facebook Live notifications.

Watch Old Facebook Live Videos

When someone finishes recording a Facebook Live video, the content is saved and added to the person’s profile for posterity.

It means anyone can scroll back through a publicc timeline and find old Facebook Live videos and watch them.

When you click on an old video, all their other old broadcasts will automatically load into a single playlist which you can then browse.
