The new immediacy, live birth

As some of you no doubt know, Facebook now allows you to broadcast live to FB with your smart phone. I've watched a number of these, a friend driving to work, another performing at a Christmas party for some old folks. I've just seen a dad broadcast the birth of his child. Well, not the actual birth, but him talking about it while it was happening. For me, this guy is mostly just a FB friend, though I have met him once or twice in real. But some of those tuned in obviously knew him (and his wife) well. Lot's of thumbs-up and hearts streaming across the screen during the narration.
