    Someone did it again. Yesterday i saw i live video being posted in about 90% of all groups i'm in with my "private" Facebook account. I followed the source of the video and landed on /conspiracyuniverse. Starting with a base of about 600 likes (when i got there), they now have nearly 120k.
    [​IMG]
    This screenshot was taken right after the live video ended. Not much interaction tbh. At that time, they had about 1.6-1.7k likes.

    What bothered me most:
    Everybody who does those live videos shares the sh't out of them to get to highest reach possible, but the intervals between their shares were to small to be handmade (about 5-10 per second) and most of the "early" shares where from profiles with thousands of followers.

    A few minutes ago i checked them again (don't ask me why) and saw this:
    [​IMG]
    and that:

    Does anybody know any way to get those shares timed so perfectly, that the post is shared immediately right after you go live?
    Being able to do that to any live video you want, would always make it go viral.

    Wow, saw that earlier too. Didn't even look at the profile. No clue on how they did it. Probably a network of accounts and some luck from people fired up from election.

    It's certainly impressive, but what I see with every page that went viral so fast is that their future posts get crap engagement.

    Look at their post of 12 hours ago, it has 35 likes.

    Same goes for Viral USA, went viral with 80K page likes
    in a day. Look at their page, a post from 12 hours ago, 6 likes. 6!!!

    I'm not sure if going viral like this would even attract
    the right kind of audience. Just sensation seekers.

    I could be wrong, but I just noticed this with about 6 other pages.

    Actually i was checking the same that their interaction with non live posts are bad.The question is how many of them going to visit their site and be profitable.Cause from 750K+ likes even if they don't like,comment or share the post...can easily make 3000 USD per month...for basically nothing VIRAL USA owns also more sites as well...i saw at least 3 other with different name,but it does belong to them.
    You do the math....simple trick gonna make them easily 10K per month...

    But how would they make 3K a month from inactive likers? Or do you mean that people don't like their posts, but do visit the article sites?

    I don't know man.. I think the whole point of those 'omg you won't believe what happened next' articles is to get as much
    attention / shares as possible, to make it go viral. If that's not happening, I doubt that they'll get enough traffic to be really profitable.

    My conclusion is that yeah, it might be easy to get tons of likes via this FB live method.. But I'm not sure if they're
    even worth it. Maybe to sell the page.. But again, I could be wrong.

    Yes that what i was saying,that even though they don't really interact with the post,but they do go to the website.In the long term it is frustrating that only 10-40% of the page sees the post or even less,but at the end it all ads up and if the page is getting close to 1Mill...and it will get there with these live videos it will be still nice money.

    Also like you said it is not targeted,but it is basically easy money. I want to do the same,managed to get scripts working and so,but my VPS just hates every program i tried to stream from..pfff

    Yeah I guess it makes sense. If you really scale this up.
    I tried a livestream myself, reached 300K, 12K likes, 1.2K comments and now has 91K views on the recorded video.

    I tried this as an expirement to see how a viral livestream would influence the reach of previous
    done posts so I did it on a page I never used before, posted some relevant pictures, and then did the livestream.

    After 2,5 hours of streaming it suddenly got a massive boost, and I was getting hundreds of viewers.
    After 4 hours of streaming it cut off because I didn't use continuous streaming (stupid..)

    Got only 51 page likes though :rolleyes:
    Also, the other post got a reach of 78. These results are bad.

    But it's probably the audience I targeted. Best of luck mate!

    Seems like they did time it, at a time America was going through her turmoil of the newly elected President.

    To me, i'll say it's Well played.

    Question do they post these videos in certain Facebook groups to make them go viral?

    I think the guy who has 1000 facebook accounts with 5000 friends on each account can achieve that

    Well, Facebook will sooner or later take care of them. Pretty sure.
    And this live stream new thing with emoticons and stuff will be gone soon too, IMO
