You may have noticed the new blue button in the login section today. You may have wondered “What is this thing?”.
This is Facebook Connect. Its amazing.
With Facebook Connect you can log in to Ustream with a click of a button. Not only that, but you know all those friends you have on Facebook? Those couple hundred friends that need love to know what you’re doing at any given time? Well, now whenever you broadcast, record a video, create a show, or even find a cool show, you have the option to share it with them in their newsfeed!
So go on! Login with Facebook Connect and share that ridiculously cute kitten stream with them – its too much cute for just you! Your friends will thank you.
To connect your Ustream account with Facebook Connect follow these steps:
1) Click the Facebook Connect Button and Log In
2) Enter in your Ustream username and password. (Or if you don’t have a Ustream account, you can make one and your Facebook account will be attached to it).
3) Log in! That was easy? Now next time you come to Ustream all you have to do is hit the “Facebook Connect” button and you’ll be logged in instantly!
You can share the following actions:
1) Broadcasting! Of course. When you press the “Start Broadcast” button in the broadcast console you will get a pop up asking if you would like to send this to your Facebook newsfeed.
2) Recording a show! Once you’re done recording a video and you have named it, you will get a pop up asking if you would like to send this to your Facebook newsfeed. The coolest part about this is that your Facebook friends will actually be able to watch the Ustream video on Facebook. You will get so many views from this!
3) Creating a show. When you make a new show you want to tell as many people as possible. Well, we know that, so we’re letting you notify your Facebook friends! A pop up will appear after you save your show asking your permission to send a notification to Facebook.
4) Sharing a cool show! This has got to be the coolest one. All those times you were watching something awesome on Ustream that you wanted to share with everyone (Obama, Shiba Inu Puppies, Obama Sign, Lil’ Wayne, 50 Cent….and so on) – Now you can! It only takes one click to. A special button just for users with Facebook Connect has been added to all show pages directly under the video player. Click “Tell your friends what you’re watching” and instanly the show will appear in your friend’s newsfeed.
