How to add a Facebook Stream Key

The first time you shoot, you'll need to add your Facebook Stream URL. You'll just do this once.
To do this, you'll simply cut and paste together 2 links from Facebook into your Otter page.
To get started, open Otter in one browser tab or window, and open Facebook in another.
