Sharing with Family (Part 3)

Everyone knows Facebook.  Most are familiar with the closed groups that can be created which are a great way to communicate with family members and share photos.

My brother-in-law just came up with a terrific idea for Christmas.  With all our family being spread out, he decided to try and have his dad do a broadcast as a Facebook live event.  It’s by invitation and can be shared with everyone but approved so that we don’t get strangers watching the event.

The plan is to have the broadcast consist of Dad sharing a few stories, answering questions from kids, grandkids, and great grandkids, and concluding with a special message.  The live broadcast allows everyone to post questions during the event.

Bonus – the broadcast can be recorded and preserved.
