Disable Facebook Live Comments and Reactions

Facebook Live is a convenient way to stream live video for your friends and followers. With this feature, streamers get to broadcast and interact with their viewers in real time. Taking the feature and what it does at face value, you might not see any issues with it. Streamers broadcast their feeds live while viewers can comment, interact, and react to videos. However, the more popular a live stream is, the more viewers it has. Though the feature is all about attracting viewers, some of them can be unruly. They can repeatedly spam enough reactions to flood the screen with likes and emoticons which may spoil your viewing experience. Also, some comments can be aggravating. If you want to skip the headaches and view the live stream without distractions, then this tutorial will help you disable comments and reactions on Facebook Live.
