Facebook’s New Video Platform
According to many sources, online video has become, and will continue to become, more and more popular.
That’s why you may have noticed that the major online players are creating more and more video content.
Facebook is one of the major players who wants to plant themselves deep within the video content game and so they’ve been making more and more moves into that arena.
Facebook Live was one of their recent moves into providing more video content and it has proven to be an extremely popular and profitable move for the social media giant.
Well, now Facebook is taking a deeper dive into the video content arena.
It’s called Facebook Watch..
Introducing Facebook Watch
This is how Facebook describes Watch…
“We’re introducing Watch, a new platform for shows on Facebook. Watch will be available on mobile, on desktop and laptop, and in our TV apps. Shows are made up of episodes — live or recorded — and follow a theme or storyline. To help you keep up with the shows you follow, Watch has a Watchlist so you never miss out on the latest episodes.
“Watch is personalized to help you discover new shows, organized around what your friends and communities are watching. For example, you’ll find sections like ‘Most Talked About,’ which highlights shows that spark conversation, ‘What’s Making People Laugh,’ which includes shows where many people have used the Haha reaction, and ‘What Friends Are Watching,’ which helps you connect with friends about shows they too are following.”
Here’s how they describe it in their video…
I started noticing Watch last week as they’ve been slowly releasing to to different Facebook users. It happened when two different friends shared two of the new shows.
I ended up watching them and really liked them!
Here’s one of the shows that I think you might like…
