On Wednesday, April 13, Facebook rolls out its new video service, Facebook Live, to users.
The service will be in Facebook's main app, in the menubar where you find Messenger.
Facebook Live is expected to be a solid competitor to Twitter, Periscope, Snapchat and YouTube - not to mention traditional TV.
Facebook Live has been available to a small number of users for a while already, but is now rolled out worldwide and is updated with a number of features borrowed from both Snapchat and Instagram, with filters and the ability to write messages during live videos.
And: This map shows who is sending video Live worldwide at any time. The size of the blue circles indicate how many viewers the live stream has.
Facebook said in a statement that they hope Facebook Live will be used for everything from private family events - such as a child's first steps - to "questions and answers" with celebrities, and major news updates.
