Facebook now supports Live Audio, allowing publishers to bring audio, such as readings, interviews, podcasts and more, to your Newsfeed. The first to access this feature is BBC World Service (news radio), LBC (Leading Britain’s Conversation talk radio), Harper Collins (book publisher), and authors Adam Grant (Originals, pop psychology), and Britt Bennett (fiction addressing race).

According to Facebook, Live Audio will be widely available early next year. Your subscribers will be notified once you begin a Live Audio session. Broadcasts will have a 4 hour time frame allowing for a variety of content.
