Facebook makes it worse for musicians again! FB recently issued new music guidelines for live streams (full text below). Musicians must use only their own music otherwise the stream will be taken down. Which means no covers!
As an alternative, there’s Twitch (Example: Code Orange)
Or use custom streaming (Example: Behemoth In Absentia Dei live concert)
