Facebook Live continues to evolve, with the social networking giant making some big changes to Live video that will make it much, much more social.

Facebook has announced Live Chat with Friends, and Live With features for Facebook Live videos. As TechCrunch points out, comment streams on popular Live videos are a gigantic mess, especially when there are hundreds and sometimes thousands of people typing comments at once, with Facebook saying there are ten times as many comments for Live videos than there are on normal videos.

There is a better way of dealing with this, so Facebook is getting you chat with friends while you're both watching Facebook Live videos. You can create a private chatroom where you can invite whoever you want, which is a great way of Facebook making Live video a much more personal experience. There's also a new feature that lets you go live with another person side-by-side, which is going to be great for interviews and collaborations.

Facebook has already pushed out Live With for all profiles and pages on iOS, while Live Chat with Friends is being tested in select countries, with a wider roll out later this year.
