I predicted nearly seven years ago while researching for the premise of a science fiction novel that I am working on, that around this time Facebook would release this type of live video streaming. I've had a pretty good track record in following these types of trends and for this one so far I have been spot on!

I had figured and still probably do, that within a few years of it's use people will always have it on recording their entire lives. Technically that can still happen, but with the recent goings-on in Minneapolis and Dallas something is occurring that I hadn't anticipated and it seems like FB didn't either, at least not to a great extent. It's uncertain if they expected the service to become so important in our daily lives within a few months of release. Can it go even farther than it already has?? Or will Facebook start to crack down on certain freedoms that FB Live introduces in new ways.

In both these high profile recent cases, people used the service which is inherently linked to the social network as a way to practically upend the news cycle. What would have been a sleepy post July 4th week. With a lot of the American population on vacations. The news that is happening in the middle of our country hit us Americans hard. News outlets, for the first time were relying solely on FB Live video for feeds instead of their own sources/cameras!

FB Live has already affected me personally, even though I have no connection to the high profile cases we have seen in connection to the service. One of my clients is a school and they have already been hit with a minor FB live snafu, in which kids were broadcasting from their phones inside the high school and showing a teacher cursing and being disrespectful to them while they taunted him with insults.

The real breakthrough out of this is that now everyone everywhere with little to no limitations can essentially become the news!

If every minute of every day is recorded and 1 wrong word can get you fired and back listed from your profession it seems like the end of real life is upon us. Every interaction will be fake because nothing outside the norm will be allowed.

What is cool is that everyone can see, what the reality of things are/were. We should be thinking about everyone from the street delinquent up to the President of the country and of Google to have to wear recorders they can snap on or use later in court.

David Brin predicted this or something very similar to this in 1990 in his novel Earth.
