Facebook Live Threatens Competition

Because It's Facebook, Stupid: Why Facebook Live Is Important or 1.59B Users Can't Be Wrong
– VideoInk

VideoInk quoted Manatt's Mary Ermitanio, a manager with Manatt Digital Media, for an article about Facebook's new Facebook Live feature, which allows users to live stream directly through the social networking giant's existing website.

Ermitanio spoke to VideoInk about what it means for competitors. "I think Meerkat saw it coming, and they pivoted," she said. "I think Periscope has seen it coming, as well, and they might also pivot, and maybe go into B2B. It's certainly threatening their current business model."
