Facebook "livestream" hoax

Yet again, a "live" video on Facebook has brought in millions of views and reactions to something which is not what it claims to be.

In the same vein as the "live" space walk that wasn't live - broadcast on 26 October on the social network - a video of a sky-high maintenance job has racked up over six million views.

The Facebook pages for Interestinate and USA Viral this afternoon each posted a video claiming to be of a lightbulb being changed at the top of a 1,999ft (609m) tower.
