Creators can add intros as openers to their live broadcasts, outros that conclude them, custom live stickers that viewers can use to interact, and graphic frames to create a consistent brand.
  • Community Tab: Connect with fans and collaborators with a unified inbox, which centralizes comments from Facebook and Instagram, and messages from Messenger.
  • Camera & Stories: Use fun camera effects and frames and easily crosspost content to other platforms. Creators can also access Facebook Stories to engage with their fans.
  • Insights: Easily access metrics to inform content creation, including analytics about your Page, videos and fans. 

The Facebook Creator App is available today on iOS. It's expected to come to Android devices sometime in the coming months.

The new website, as told by the company, will teach skills to help a Creator make better conetnt, as well as serving as a resource for commonly-asked questions.
