Managing Comments for a Broadcast

To manage Facebook comments after your broadcast has started, select the Manage Overlays button on the toolbar:

You will be directed to Soacialive's web-based admin portal, or navigate there directly & log-in:

In the Admin Portal, click on the "COMMENTS" tab of the left-hand menu, and log into Facebook using the buttons:

Choose the Facebook page for which you want to manage Facebook broadcast comments, and your current live broadcasts will appear. 

Choose your live broadcast, then choose "MANAGE CHECKED LIVE EVENTS" at the bottom of the screen:

Liking, Replying, and Deleting Comments

Under each comment for an event in the Comments Manager is a toolbar with the options to Like, Reply, Delete (hide) each comment.

Liking and replying to comments allows you to engage with your audience.

Clicking Delete will make a comment invisible to public users (e.g. non-admins of the page) without letting the commenter know that you made the change. 

Comments As On-Screen Overlays

You can make a Facebook comment appear on screen by pressing the "LIVE" toggle in the Comments Manager page.

Sending Comments To Prompter

You also have the ability to send Facebook comments to the Prompter, by selecting the prompter icon.
Your comment will the be displayed on the prompter in a new browser window. For information on managing the Prompter, please refer to the Socialive Prompter overview.
