With Live crossposting you can allow a Page to post your Live video broadcast without needing to upload or share it directly. Only broadcasts created via the Live API (Publisher Tools and facebook.com/live/create) are eligible for Live crossposting. Broadcasts originating from mobile cannot be Live crossposted.
Each Live crosspost is treated as a separate broadcast on each Page. Comments and reactions from your Page's broadcast would not appear in another Page's crossposted broadcast. Viewers cannot see where the original Live broadcast is coming from.
In order to Live crosspost you'll need to establish a crossposting relationship with another Page. Once you establish a crossposting relationship with a Page, that Page will also be able to choose how your Page can crosspost their Live videos. Creating a crossposting relationship covers both VOD (video on demand) and Live broadcasts.
Establishing Crossposting Relationships
To add establish a crossposting relationship:
Go to Settings on your Page.
Type the Page's name or Facebook URL and select it from the list.
Select an automatic Live crossposting relationship or a manual Live crossposting relationship.
Choose Allow [Page name] to crosspost their live video to your page without further approval to select an automatic Live crossposting relationship.
Choose Require [Page name] crossposted live videos to be approved by on of your admins or editors before being crossposted to your Page to select a manual Live crossposting relationship.
The Page must confirm the relationship by adding your Page to its crossposting settings. To help the Page confirm the relationship, click
When a Page submits a crossposting request to another Page one of three scenarios can occur:
The request is sent to the Page and remains as a Pending Crosspost Request until it's accepted by the other Page.
The request is automatically approved because you submitted the crosspost request and are also an admin of the crossposted Page.
The request is automatically approved because the crossposting Page has sent your Page a request in the past.
Automatic Crossposting Relationships
Under Crossposting, automatic crossposting relationships are represented by:
They're only available for Live broadcasts because of their time sensitive nature.
To establish an automatic crossposting relationship with another Page, click Allow [Page name] to crosspost their live video to your Page without further approval.
Once your Page establishes a relationship with another Page, then all of the Page's broadcasts which enable Live crossposting will automatically publish on your Page. Select this option only for trusted Pages.
Leaving the box unchecked allows another Page to publish a broadcast enabled for Live crossposting automatically onto your Page.
If you crosspost the broadcast and are a shared admin or editor of the crossposted Page, broadcasts which enable Live crossposting will automatically publish on the crossposted Pages.
If you've established an automatic crossposting relationship with another Page and you don't want a specific crossposted Live broadcast to appear on your Page, delete the Live crossposted broadcast on your Page.
Manual Crossposting Relationships
To establish a manual review and approval of Live crossposted videos, click Require [Page name] crossposted live videos to be approved by one of your admins or editors before being crossposted to your Page.
If you crosspost the broadcast and are not a shared admin or editor of the crossposted Page, broadcasts which enable Live crossposting will appear under Videos You Can Crosspost on the crossposted Pages.
If you're creating and crossposting a Live broadcast and are also an admin or editor of the other Page that the broadcast is being crossposted to, the broadcast will be an automatic crosspost.
Under Crossposting these scenarios are represented by:
Manual Crossposting with an Established Automatic Crossposting Relationship
To create a manual crosspost when you have an existing automatic crossposting relationship established, you would have to:
ensure there are no shared admins or editors between the Pages
switch the automatic crossposting relationship to manual via Settings
If you only want to manually crosspost a specific Live broadcast it may be easier to share the broadcast instead.
After a Live has ended it becomes a VOD. You can edit it and select the Pages that will be receiving the crosspost manually.
VOD only supports manual crossposting. Under Crossposting VOD is represented by:
Learn more about VOD crossposting.
If you have an automatic Live crossposting relationship established with a Page, you should edit the broadcast's metadata as soon as the original broadcast automatically goes Live.
If the crossposted Page wants a unique description, title, or targeting setting for the crossposted Live broadcast on their Page's Live broadcast post before it is shown to the public make sure you're manually crossposting and don't share an admin or editor.
If each broadcast has different targeting it's best to use manual crossposting. This will ensure that admins or editors do not have to change targeting settings in real-time and followers of Pages that are Live crossposting do not receive a Live push notification for a broadcast that they likely can't view.
Scheduled Live Broadcasts
A Scheduled Live post can be created up to 7 days in advance of the broadcast. A crossposted Scheduled Live means the crossposted Live broadcast will appear on all crossposted Pages before the broadcast transitions to an isLive state. The Live broadcast will also appear on all crossposted Pages during and after the broadcast.
To initiate a Live crosspost when creating a Scheduled Live broadcast post:
Go to Settings
Select the Page(s) that will receive the Live crosspost
Select a date and time
You can edit a Scheduled Live post after it is created.
Expired and Deleted Live Crossposted Broadcasts
If a Page admin or editor expires the original Live broadcast after it ends only the original is expired. Expiration has no impact on crossposted broadcasts.
If the original Live broadcast is deleted, all of Live crossposts will also be deleted. You will receive a warning indicating the broadcast was crossposted before they permanently delete the Live crosspost.
If the broadcast is deleted after the Live broadcast has ended, only that specific broadcast is deleted. All other crossposted Live broadcasts including the original broadcast remain available for playback.
Disabling Live Crosspost Broadcasts
Disabling Live crossposting from the original broadcast terminates the crossposted Live broadcast on the selected Pages. The original broadcast will remain unaffected. After the Live broadcast is complete the complete VOD is shown on all crossposted Pages.
