Vine is Getting Killed Off. Now What? [Updated]

Update: Vine did not officially die. Instead, it became Vine Camera on January 17, 2017. See the FAQs and get more information.

Are You Using Facebook Live? You Should!

Are you using Facebook Live? I am! Well, I’m just starting to.

Today — Star Wars Day —  I recorded my second Facebook Live video (see it at the end of this post). Unlike Google+ Hangouts, I didn’t jump at the chance to test out Facebook’s new video app.
