Watch Your Back.
Facebook’s newish live video feature will soon have the ability to host videos that are 24-hours long. Currently, they’re capped at just 90 minutes.
To make the most of it, you’re going to need to spice up your days a bit. Nobody wants to see live feeds of you sitting at home watching other people’s live feeds — or worse, television.
Best you get in the habit in the meantime. Might as well get started tonight. Go on, git.
