7. Log in to Facebook.com
8. Select your Username at the top right corner.
9. In the new post area, click Live Video:

11. For the TC40 specifically, you will need to uncheck the "Use a secure connection (SSL)" option (circled in Red) on the page. This will provide an RTMP (Adobe Flash) compatible Server URL (circled in Green) which uses port 80 for streaming. Once (SSL) is unchecked the Server URL will update to a new address using port 80 (see below).

Please note: Starting on November 1, 2019, Facebook will only use the RTMPS option for (SSL) streaming. The TC40 does not support RTMPS streams. Our latest models of TriCaster (TC1, Mini Advanced Edition 2 & 3, 410 Plus, VMC1) support RTMPS streaming.
