Restream now supports online events introduced by Facebook. That means when you schedule an event in Restream, it automatically creates a Facebook Online Event.
What to know:
🌟 The new event will be created on the Facebook Events Page.
🌟 Event announcements are not automatically posted to your Facebook profile timeline.
🌟 You can now schedule events more than 7 days in advance.
To share the event on your timeline, click the three dots under your event, copy the link, and post it on your Facebook profile.
