We encourage our clients to embrace social media at their practice. There are multiple benefits to maintaining an active presence on one or more social networks, such as keeping in contact with your patients, keeping them informed about changes at your office, and even increasing the chance of people in your patients’ circles finding out about you. Once unique facet of social networking is Facebook Live. Interested in learn more about this relatively new feature?
What Should You Share?
Debuting in March of 2016, Facebook Live allows you to film short videos and your followers on Facebook can watch live as the video on streams. They can also comment and like them in the process. Afterward, you can save the video to your page. More and more businesses are using this a way of filming fun shorts, showcasing changes to their office, or simply introducing people to their team. As a dentist, you can do the same thing, as well as showcase treatments, technology, and other dental-related information. As people like, comment, and share, people on their friends list can see.
How Do You Use Facebook Live?
You can access Live by looking at your status. Below where it asks what’s on your mind, there’s a button that says “Live” and has a picture of a camera. Click this, and then give Facebook access to your camera. You will then be prompted to write a description, be sure to write an interesting one! You can choose your audience and start filming (your video will be shared as you do).
