Okay, here’s a tech tip for you today. Do you ever do Facebook lives? The default is to reverse the image, so it’s mirrored. This is great when you’re doing the video as it’s less confusing when you’re fixing your hair or pointing something out. The downfall comes in when you want your audience to read something you’ve presented. I often find myself showing oil bottles or books, so I figured out how to reverse the image, and now I’m going to show you. This is specific to mobile devices.

  1. Open Facebook on your phone
  2. Navigate to the space where you’ll do your live video (I use my page)
  3. Under “write something” activate it by tapping, then choose “Live Video”
  4. Make sure your phone is rooted the way you want. I like mine to be landscape view, so I rotate mine 90 degrees.
  5. Go ahead and add your description of your video
  6. Tap on the star magic wand
  7. Disable or enable any effects you want
  8. Select the tools in the far right bottom corner
  9. The first option flips the screen horizontally. The second option flips the screen vertically (I have not had a use for this (yet?).) The third option adjusts the brightness. Choose the first option. This “rights” your screen, so you can share things and it will be the “right” way.
  10. When you’ve chosen all the things, made sure the view is the way you want to, start your live video!

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
