With New App, Ustream Aims To Take Live Streaming On Facebook "To A New Level"

Exclusive – Ustream is today launching a new and improved Facebook application that it says will take live streaming within the hugely popular social networking site “to another level”.

The app, which is currently available to anyone with a Facebook fan page, be they businesses, artists or general user communities, enables users to opt-in for reminders for upcoming streaming events using Facebook Oauth and receive notifications whenever a certain broadcaster turns on a live stream (the ‘Join Crowd’ feature).

Facebook page administrators can now also customize their application’s look and feel, require users to ‘like’ their Facebook page prior to viewing, and more.

One of the first to give the new Ustream for Facebook app a whirl is Black Eyed Peas front man Will.I.Am, who will be broadcasting live on Facebook today at 2PM Pacific time.

You’ll also be able to catch it on BEP’s Facebook page.ยต
