Social Media Idea for Tournaments

Hello quizbowl,

I want to share an idea I had a few weeks ago. I was watching a Facebook Live video made by a friend of mine, and an idea came to me-we could quite easily use Facebook Live to broadcast the opening meeting and/or the awards ceremony of a tournament on Facebook Live. I know there are some challenges with getting things filmed (getting permission from everybody, etc.), but I think this could be a fantastic game-changer. Can you imagine how awesome it would be to share a video of the awards ceremony at HSNCT or NSC?

I'd love to see some discussion about this. Hope to see if it's feasible to get this implemented.

There's a difference between YouTube videos (which is where the ACF Nationals videos are, from 2012 on) and Facebook Live. Think about it. How many people have a Facebook page? And how many quizbowl organizations have a facebook page? The possibilities for Facebook Live is exciting to think about.

P.S. I do appreciate the ACF Nationals videos, Jerry!

I think Michael might have been referring to how my brother Kevin Wang broadcast a Facebook Live stream of the finals and awards ceremony at this year's ACF Nationals. It wasn't an official ACF thing, though.

Yeah my bad. I was aware that Kevin's stream wasn't official but I was also under the impression someone else had been streaming it officially.

PACE is exploring platforms, including Facebook Live, for livestreaming parts of NSC this year. More details to come!
