You probably know you can add your own logo as well as many other overlay graphic layers to Facebook Live, but there’s no easy way to do it without using 3rd party software like OBS, Livestream, Wirecast and others and will only work on desktop, what do you do when you go live from your mobile phone?

On December 2016 Facebook released the Facebook Frames platform, enabling users to create their own business or personal frames. Now you can use those custom frames on Facebook Live from your mobile, thus adding your logo/ graphic overlay on Facebook Live.

[Updated] I get a lot of questions and comments that it’s not working. I just tested it (April 12th 2020) and it workd with a frame I created back in 2017. So no worries.

How to easily add your logo on Facebook Live?

First things first: Make sure you have your desired logo/ graphic in a transparent PNG file.

Go to the Facebook Frames Studio and start creating your own frame.

Drag and drop the PNG file and place it in the desired position based on the preview screens on the right. 

Adjust the size so it doesn’t hide important parts in your video.

Once you finish designing, give your frame a name and make sure it’s active immediately (unless your frame is for a future event). You can add tags for more visibility, especially if you want others to use it.

If you want it to be real public share it and encourage your friends and followers to use it as well. It can be used as a profile photo frame, a regular photo frame for new Facebook posts and your Facebook Live logo.

Once you publish it, it’s out there. The next time you go live from your mobile, click the “wand” button on the bottom left of your Facebook Live screen and scroll through dozens of branded custom frames until you reach yours. You can also change frames while you are live, it won’t be easy finding the one you want while on-air, but it’s doable.

 

That’s it, you now have your own Facebook Live logo on mobile.

    Hello

    Mine no longer works with Live videos. My logo disappears as soon as I click on the Live option?

    Any ideas as to why?

    Thanks

    Does this only work if you are using iOS or Android platform? I see the wand on my phone but not from my PC where my webcam is connected? Is there a known hack to use facebook live filters from a PC?

    Hi Geekstyle writer, I can’t see your name, Great info thank you, you are a genius, couple of things not clear…

    1 It won’t work on the iPhone because you can’t move the logo around with the phone once you have uploaded it.

    2 When you create it if FB frames studio on the laptop, it will create it but when you got to look for it it ads a green colored filter to the background, this has happened 3 times with three logos and is therefore impossible to use as it turns all my live videos green,

    Have you any solutions or suggestions?

    I’m just trying to put my logo & decal o my livestream videos that I stream through my phone, nothing more

    thank you in advance

      Thanks Paul. When you create the frames in the frame studio there are vertical versions for mobile use, this is where you place the logo in the right corner for your use when going live on mobile.
