How Presidential Candidates helped me earn Facebook likes is AMAZING!

UPDATE: 12/01/2016:
We had a plan to launch the new updated script on Cyber Monday, but due to some technical problems with our hosting, we had to delay it for a couple of days more. In the meantime we are working hard on the new version of the script! It will be launched by the end of this week, with a lot of new features! Stay tuned!

UPDATE: 11/25/2016:
The new and improved Facebook Voting Live Stream application is ready and will be launched on Black Friday (today)!

UPDATE: 11/14/2016:
You can expect a new and improved Facebook Voting Live Stream application very soon! We are working on it! Be the first to test – SUBSCRIBE to the email list in the right sidebar!

Yesterday I’ve seen a forum thread that points to some guys who made millions of Facebook likes and views in matter of 5-6 hours (screenshot taken a bit late).

So, I decided to replicate the method. You will get the complete spoon-fed method and source code with a live counter that’s going to count the real number of votes. I replicated this method like 12 hours ago, after a sleepless night and I’m releasing it right after I got up.

I’m not selling anything. Just decided to give back to the IM community. Feel free to share/like/comment if you like what you read.

There’s one more day before elections are over, so try to squeeze the more you can out of this method. Once again, KUDOS to the original method creator! They truly are pure genius!

Step by step guide:

What those guys did is an amazing job! They created a viral video of live voting on Facebook. A like is a vote for Hillary. A love is a vote for Trump. They took of in matter of hours (5-6 hours for 300k likes and 10M views). What they did is amazing! Never seen anything more creative in Internet Marketing business!

Prerequisites:
You will need a Facebook page, a domain with hosting, this Facebook post counter HTML/JS code (posted below), a Windows/Mac PC (or a VPS), OBS Studio (a free streaming PC application) and OBS Studio Browser plugin (browser streaming plugin to stream the voting counter – works only with PC/Mac).

Basics:
Due to very high reach of Facebook Live streams, we will create a Facebook live stream of a voting process with a real-time counter of likes/loves. The counter is basically a web page with an mp4 background and Facebook Javascript API counter of the likes/loves of the live stream post.

1

Let’s create a Live stream.
Since you already have a Facebook Page you are going to promote, click on Publishing Tools on your page.

 

 

2

Go Live!
1. Click on Videos.
2. Click on Live

 

3

Create live video
3. This is your streaming key that you will enter into OBS Studio software to be able to stream. Copy it. You will need it in the next step.

 

4

Create live video title and tags
4. Come up with a title that describes the live video
5. Add some tags. You could use those from the sample image.
6. Stream key once again (it’s the same key like on the previous image).

 

5

OBS Studio
7. Click on File – Settings – Stream: paste the key from Facebook that you previously copied.

 

6

Browser Source Plugin
8. You can find the OBS Browser Source plugin here. Add BrowserSource to Sources in OBS and type in the URL you will use to stream the voting. What you need to do is basically to host the source code that I posted below and put the url here. That means you need a domain name. If your domain name is: mydomain.com you could host this code in a directory, so the URL to it will be: http://www.mydomain.com/live/ (for example). You need to type that URL here. Continue with the steps and you will get the explanation of how to use the code.

Presidential Elections 2016 voting stream
How will the stream look like!

Some streaming tweaks
Facebook Live streaming limits are 720p in 30fps. Feel free to use 2000kB/s bitrate (or even lower) and 1280×720 resolution. Audio bit rate should not go above 128kB/s.

 

d

Voting app

Now let’s get to some real stuff! This is the most important part here!
In order to be able to use voting counter, create a Facebook application and host this code somewhere (code locked, please share to unlock):

  • Please help us by sharing our content to others! Every share means a lot! Thank you!

 

The ZIP file above contains an MP4 loop background (American Flag waiving), 2 images of Hillary and Trump and index.html file. index.html is basically just a HTML/CSS layout and Java Script functions to fetch the like/love counter and increment it. Javascript is one Facebook javascript API request to fetch the number of likes/loves on the original FB Live stream post, and one js function to display it below presidential candidates + the incrementation function (the counter).

 

Creating a Facebook page application:

a

 

b

App Dashboard step 1
App ID and App Secret that you need to replace in index.html

 

c

App Dashboard step 2
Add your domains here so the javascript API requests could be whitelisted. If not, your domain will not be able to fetch the counter changes.

 

d

App Dashboard step 3
You need to make the application public!!! Don’t forget this step, otherwise the live counter wouldn’t work.

 

Source code modifications:
In order to make the source code working, opet index.html in a text editor and replace {post_id_goes_here} with your post id (it is a combination of page id and post id, separated with underscore), and {application_access_token_goes_here} with app token (it is a combination of page id and access token). Both variable should not contain {} curly brackets.

{post_id_goes_here} = id of the Live Streaming post

The counter request is basically this line of code:

https://graph.facebook.com/v2.8/?ids={post_id_goes_here}&fields=reactions.type(LIKE).limit(0).summary(total_count).as(reactions_like),reactions.type(LOVE).limit(0).summary(total_count).as(reactions_love)&access_token={application_access_token_goes_here}

Too speed up the process, you can use Facebook Graph API Explorer and the exact Live Stream post URL in order to find those values: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/explorer/

Elections are ready to start!
This is how this viral post will look like at the end! You need to set up the counter by adding Live Stream post id to index.html and let the games begin! There’s incremental function added to the counter so the counter will count all the time. Real Votes are refreshed every 30 seconds and will replace the incremented votes.
Starting votes are inflated, to look more realistic. Feel free to replace classes class=”ch” and class=”ct” with any number you want. “function hilary” and “function trump” and incremental functions, so feel free to adjust them the way you like.

Important notices!

  1. Pin the Live Streaming post to the top of your Page!
  2. You need to go to other related groups/pages and post a link to your Live stream post in order to get traction.
  3. I would also recommend NOT to use continuous video on Facebook, since it will be removed after the streaming process is finished. In that case, your video will be stopped after 4 hours, so you need to make a post #2, but a good thing is that it will be recorded, and it will stay in the page as a post. Just create a new stream and add a like to it to the comments (pin it to the top).
  4. If you want to add music to it, just play some royalty free music in your favourite music player. You need to add credits to the original authors of the music. These are some examples, but you can Google your own:
    http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music/2
    http://www.purple-planet.com/
    https://www.audioblocks.com/royalty-free-audio/music

For setting that up, you will need like an hour, so it’s better to hurry up and see what could you get for the time until the actual elections. I’m curious to see what numbers did you make (reactions/views) in total, so feel free to post them below. Feel free to use the code for any other project.

I don’t need to suggest any monetization methods after you earn all the likes, since I’m sure you will come up with something. 馃檪

Disclaimer notice:
Feel free to replace all the files in the subdirectories with your own ones, since only index.html is what is important! You can find only index.html source code above. I put the rest of the files to the ZIP to speed up the process of creation, since there’s not much time left. I did not add any code that does not belong there. I did NOT add any links to my sites. This method is 100% FREE and I don’t earn anything from it.

Thanks to the original creator of this method! He/she is a pure genius! If I was about to hire a PR company, they will be #1 on my list! Kudos to them! Also thanks to a friend that spend couple of hours on getting the code and setting up the counter fetching application.

If you like the method, feel free to share/like/comment! Thanks!

Also, please let me know in the comments where or how you found this page. I appreciate it!

This is an example of what one of my new friends from Denmark achieved on the election day, on 20k followers page that was not used in 3 years, in only 4 hours today (that’s the maximum length of Facebook non-continuous video). Looks like Facebook Live Stream has incredible reach, indeed! Good luck and be persistent with this method, it will pay off! Thanks for sharing!


Update on 11/10/2016:

Some more success shared by new friends:

  5. 10-seconds plays

Around 90k likes on that post.


Update on 11/11/2016:

Since there were a lot of people who do not know how to install the script, despite all the instructions, I was thinking about to start offering installations for donation, since I can not manage to help everybody.

I’m still not sure about it. Let me know in the comments what do you think.
