Step 2 - Click on the “Publishing Tools” tab

Step 3 - Click on the “Videos” tab on the left-hand navigation bar

Step 6 - Once complete, click the drop-down button on the right-hand side of “go live”. This will allow you to schedule your Facebook Live. Click on “schedule live”.

Step 7 - You can now choose a date and time to start your live broadcast. You can also upload a custom image to share with your Facebook audience.
