Live streaming app Meerkat rolled out several major updates this morning, including?the ability to sign up on the platform through Facebook instead of Twitter, a feature that?lets you?invite those watching your stream to take over that stream, and it now facilitates?saving streams in something called the?Meerkat Library instead of on your phone.

We'll get through all of these updates in a minute, but first a quick recap?on Meerkat?vs.Twitter for context:?Meerkat was on a roll shortly after launching earlier this year, thanks in large part to Product Hunt and becoming the?"it" app at South by Southwest. However, the true gas on the growth was largely due to Twitter's social graph.

Meerkat would tweet out that users were live on the platform every time they started a stream. More people started streaming, more tweets went out. But then came Periscope, Twitter's rival platform. Twitter then blocked Meerkat from its social graph and that was the end of that romance.

Facebook Friends

It looks like Meerkat has moved on from its breakup and is now in the friendly arms of Facebook . Even with the bad blood betwixt them, folks still?had to have a Twitter account?to sign up on the app. Now they just need Facebook.

Meerkat was already getting cozy with Facebook in May. The live streaming platform opened up the ability for brands to post a link to their Meerkat live streams on their Facebook page using?Facebook Connect instead of Twitter. This new update means individuals can sign up via the Facebook registration API without a Twitter account. It will also help those?already on the platform find their Facebook friend's streams.

The feature is optional and will auto-follow?all your friends on the app connected through Facebook. However, Meerkat founder Ben Rubin was quick to tell TechCrunch that it won't automatically tell all your friends you're scheduled to go live, that you are live streaming or commenting on Meerkat.

Twitter is in real-time where Facebook is not. That's why we chose not to do that and instead focus on your friends and interests. Ben Rubin
