You’re finally ready to take the plunge and go live on social media. Congratulations! Going live is a great way to connect with your followers in real-time and build a deeper emotional connection with them.
But before you hit that “go live” button, there are a few things you need to do to make sure your live stream is private. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through everything you need to do to set up a private live stream on your favorite social media platform.
- Choose a private live streaming platform. The first step to setting up a private live stream is to choose a platform that supports privacy features. Some of the most popular platforms for private live streaming are Facebook Live, Instagram Live, and Snapchat Live.
- Make sure your privacy settings are set to “Friends Only” or “Private.” Once you’ve chosen a platform, the next step is to make sure your privacy settings are set correctly. On Facebook and Instagram, you’ll want to set your privacy settings to “Friends Only” or “Private.” On Snapchat, you can choose who can view your Live Story by opening the Snapchat app, tapping on your profile icon in the top-left corner, tapping on “My Friends,” and then tapping on the setting icon in the top-right corner (it looks like a gear).
- 3. Invite your friends (or family)! Once you’ve chosen a platform and made sure your privacy settings are set correctly, it’s time to invite your friends or family members to join you for your private live stream. You can do this by sending them a direct message on the platform you’re using or by sharing a link to your live stream with them.
- Start streaming! The final step is to hit that “go live” button and start streaming! Remember, private doesn’t mean perfect—so don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through and have some fun with it.
