      According to Facebook’s recent post in its blog, the company has promised that the Live Stream feature will be rolled out to more countries besides US in the near future. The company hasn’t officially stated a date for the roll out. Therefore, it is expected to happen very soon and you will be able to livestream in Philippines in a few weeks.
