Facebook also added a new feature that makes it easy to use streaming software or external hardware when going live from a computer.

“With this update, people can seamlessly share their screens, insert graphics, switch cameras, or use professional equipment in Facebook Live videos,” the social media giant said.

With this update, it is easier to stream your PC gameplay to friends and followers and engage with them while you play.

“Opening up on desktop takes Facebook Live beyond Twitter and Periscope’s options, and brings it into competition with longer-running services like YouTube,” TechCrunch reported.

The report quoted Facebook as saying that the desktop streaming could be useful for activities like Q&As and vlogging where holding phone in hand could be inconvenient.

“While the content on Live might not be great yet, and there’s been some troubling broadcasts of violence that Facebook promises it’s working to prevent, it’s still early for the medium,” the report added. (IANS)

Shikha Talsania, who was recently seen in one of the lead roles in a hit film, Veere Di Wedding, has said that she often faces body-shaming on social media, but she prefers to reply to them with “love and positivity”.

Talking about the incident, Shikha revealed that once somebody called her moti (fat) on social media, on which she gave her befitting reply and chose to reply to the troll with a “hug”. While speaking with Hindustan Times, “At the beginning of our promotions for Veere Di Wedding, somebody sent me a spurt of abuses like ‘moti, here’s the biggest gaali to you’. I responded by saying ‘kintu, parantu, bandhu, here’s a hug to you’. That’s all they need. And I really want to say them that don’t be a hater, be a lover.”

She further said, “I find it really interesting to read what people are saying about me. Sometimes, I choose to respond and sometimes, I don’t. Most of the times, I don’t. I feel if I respond to them in the same way they write to me then it’ll take things to a different level.”

“Somewhere, I always chose to respond [to trolls] with a lot of love and positivity. I feel trolling is such a lovely insight into human behaviour (grins). Honestly, I have never let it affect me too much,” Shikha added. (IANS)
