Facebook Live is being expanded in a big way starting today, with all kinds of new features and functionality.

 

A big one is support for Groups and Events: now you can stream live to select people, for a select event, or make the stream the event. Facebook imagines a few specific scenarios: streaming live from a birthday party for someone those that can't make it, taking fans who RSVP "backstage", or scheduling a Q&A session.

Other exciting features include invites (which allow you to watch live streams together with a friend) and discovery options (including a map that shows you broadcasts from all over the world), to name a couple.

 

Expect the changes to roll out on iOS and Android over the coming weeks.
