Watching videos on Facebook has the fabulous power to connect people, discover videos through friends and bring communities together.
Facebook launches a new feature called “Watch tab” where people can watch short, episodic video shows including live shows, from reality to comedy to live sports. This feature was launched on Thursday. The Watchwill be available on mobile, desktop, laptop and other TV apps.
The Watch tab puts a lot of sections around videos, where you’ll find categories like “Most Talked About,” “What’s Making People Laugh,” and “What Friends Are Watching.” The tab is divided into two sections: discover and Watchlist, which suggests videos you would like to see, and collects videos for you to watch later respectively. If you like any show, you can just follow the show, and latest episodes will then appear in your Watchlist.
Watch is a great platform to increase theinterest of all users and creators to find an audience, build communication, and earn money for their business. Every show has a comment section, where users can discuss new updates in detail and find new friends.
Facebook has plenty of expectations at launch. It has 2 billion people with their eyes glued to its app. But there is another downside too. YouTube has a 12-year head start in attracting creators and viewers, who are watching videos daily. And Facebook’s new entry into video will create incredible changes into other video providing apps.Definitely, it’s a big attack on TV.
It will be introducing Watch to a limited group of users in the U.S. and planning to bring the experience to more people soon.
