In a statement, Facebook had said on December 17 last year that in August, after introducing live streaming for public figures, thousands of athletes, musicians, politicians and others used the media to connect with their millions of fans behind the scenes in real time.

When contacted, a spokesperson for Reliance Industries confirmed the help extended by Facebook to set up the live-streaming. The event, verified via the page of a media director, was also tested for various parameters.
