Short Take: Babies Take Over Facebook

Facebook is pushing further into the live video business — with the help of babies.

On Tuesday (Nov. 15) at 6:30 Facebook will host BabyCenter Live — a live video event produced by BabyCenter and sponsored by Sprout Organic Baby Food, which will feature parenting experts, celebrity chefs and mommy bloggers.
BabyCenter is planning several installments of BabyCenter Live. Among the guests scheduled to appear during the debut event are celebrity chef and father of three Tyler Florence, and BabyCenter’s Momformation food blogger Lindsay Weiss. Florence and Weiss will attempt to cook a healthy Thanksgiving meal suited for babies and toddlers.
