In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Salma Jafri breaks explains three reasons why trying to repurpose live video from Facebook or Periscope on YouTube is a bad idea.

Facebook is driven by interaction between social users, while YouTube is driven by audience coming to the site for specific content.
