Facebook Live Requirements 2024

New Facebook Live Streaming Requirements (2024)

Do you stream to Facebook? If so, you may have noticed big changes to Facebook’s live streaming over the past few months starting with Meta discontinuing all third-party access to Facebook groups and now new Facebook live streaming requirements.

According to Meta: “Facebook is aligning its requirements for using Live with industry standards to continue helping streamers connect and engage with their audience while limiting the spread of potentially harmful content.”

New Facebook Streaming Requirements 2024

As of June 10, 2024, Facebook Live streamers will need to meet the following requirements in order to be able to live stream to their Pages and Professional Mode Profiles:

  • Your Facebook account must be at least 60 days old.
  • All Facebook Pages and “professional mode” Facebook Profiles will need at least 100 followers.

What does this mean for those who aren’t able to meet these requirements?

Unfortunately, you will no longer have access to live stream to your Pages until you meet the new requirements. If you’re using streaming tools like Ecamm Live, you will receive a message when you try to live stream to Facebook saying that you are currently not able to broadcast.

Here are what the messages will look like in Ecamm Live v4.3.2 or newer (older versions of Ecamm will have a slightly different error message).

While Facebook continues to move forward with updates to Facebook Live, it’s important to note that other platforms like YouTube, LinkedIn, and X (Twitter) do not currently have a threshold for streaming.
