How to see who watched my Facebook live video?

Ever since Facebook launched Facebook Live Broadcast at the beginning of 2016, influencers and companies have been jumping on the bandwagon, trying to engage with their audience and gain new followers or customers.

And it’s no wonder. A live video is a great way to reach your audience in a real, down-to-earth way, showing you’re up for open communication and gaining their trust and appreciation.

As opposed to YouTube, where most videos tend to look very professional, are highly directed or follow a cookie-cutter format, Facebook Live has a more relaxed feel to it, and is — of course — live (during its live streaming), which allows you to communicate with your viewers on the spot.

Plus, you don’t have to edit any videos, and you get the best of both worlds: live interaction with your audience while the video is live streaming, and a static video that can remain on your feed long after the live streaming is over, allowing people to like and comment on your video, just like they would on YouTube.

But there are four main things people are curious about when it comes to Facebook Live, whether due to privacy concerns, for statistical purposes, or just out of curiosity:

  1. Can you see who’s watching Facebook Live?
  2. Can you see who watched your Facebook Live after?
  3. Can people see you on Facebook Live?
  4. Will someone know if I watched their live video on Facebook after it has ended?
