Facebook Office in Mumbai Unveils ‘Bandstand’, A Studio for Celebs to engage LIVE with their fans
Social networking has been an important medium for celebrities to connect LIVE with their fans. Facebook LIVE chat has been immensely popular lately among the bollywood stars to interact with their fans. Keeping this in mind Bandstand studio has been opened in Mumbai’s Facebook office for all the popular artists. Bandstand studio is designed as an artistic space to facilitate Facebook LIVE interactions for biggies.
On the launch of FB Bandstand, Saurabh Doshi, Head of Media Partnerships at Facebook said, “Artists and Celebrities from across the world and India are using Facebook LIVE to connect with their fans, interact and engage in real time in an authentic and refreshing way. FB Bandstand is a unique space for talent to be able to go live easily in a creative and fun way when they visit FB office in Mumbai. We hope we get to view many fun and memorable moments created at FB Bandstand.”
Facebook doesn’t plan to charge anything for the use of this space and any public figure with a Facebook page can book Bandstand and use it. This is the first time Facebook has launched such a space in India, Facebook has similar setups in Los Angeles and New York in the US, with the former targeted at actors and the latter at all public figures. With Bandstand in Mumbai, Facebook mostly plans to target celebrities but the company said the room is available for personalities “across spectrum”.
