Facebook brings Live broadcasting to its Spaces virtual reality app

Facebook will soon be allowing users of its Oculus Rift virtual reality system to live stream themselves inside VR to their Facebook friends and followers as avatars.

Users will be able to go Live to all their friends and can position a virtual camera to capture their experience. A lot of things will look familiar to a traditional Live broadcast for the streamer, but features like physically reaching out and grabbing a comment to show those watching are things only possible in VR.

The move combines a couple of the top tech trends of the year, and evidences the bridge the social platform is looking to build between its current functionality and its VR aspirations in the future.
