YouTube. To broadcast the video on this channel, you must first download a verified YouTube-coder. And yet there is Live Chat, which allows you to leave comments during the broadcast. But remember that after you finish recording the message viewers are not archived, only the video.
Twitter. Broadcast live in this social network is possible through a special application Periscope. Since December of last year, this feature is available for all Twitter users irrespective of, whether they have downloaded the app or not. But really, in this case, to broadcast need only a smartphone. If I want a computer – you need to install Periscope.

Combine live streaming and video with all-round visibility – and you will get live video 360°. There is such a possibility on Facebook and Twitter, but until it is available to all publishers. However, both companies promise to rectify the situation as soon as possible. But if not want to wait – welcome to YouTube. Then shoot a live video 360° can do it all. But before you start the stream, it is necessary to plan.
Videos in this format can be published to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Twitter. Here you can make any circular video, which lasts less than 6.5 seconds. Just publish it and enjoy the result.
Facebook. Works on the same principle as Twitter, but with some differences. So, Facebook dwell video length to 30 seconds. In this Twitter video will be repeated an infinite number of times, and on Facebook in just 90 seconds.
