Facebook Introduces Live Audio

So what happens when people use Facebook Live Audio to become amateur radio DJs broadcasting copyrighted music? Live audio sex streams? Something tells me this is another one of those things that Facebook didn't really think all the way through before rolling it out.

We know that sometimes publishers want to tell a story on Facebook with words and not video. We’ve even seen some Pages find creative ways to go live and reach audiences with audio only by using the Facebook Live API or by adding a still image to accompany their audio broadcast. Our new Live Audio option makes it easy to go live with audio only when that’s the broadcaster’s preferred format.
