We love watching funny kitten video to celebrity gossips to technological information, so whats better than YouTube to watch your favorite video. This Platform has many contains that even the contain creators got well known throughout the world and are making their living possible though the ads from Google/Youtube. There some video streaming website like Vimeo and others but none like YouTube in the variety of contains. There is Netflix but being a paid app, it’s not accessible to everyone. So, the Facebook sees the opportunity and plans to launch a YouTube like feature called Facebook Watch.
There is one platform catching up with YouTube, Facebook is just a Social media but is turning into one stop for everything. Actually, people are watching more videos in the Facebook than before. Seeing this opportunity Facebook is launching new app similar to YouTube “Watch”. The Facebook Watch will be available on mobile, on desktop and laptop, and in our TV apps.
Facebook Watch is a platform for all creators and publishers to find an audience, build a community of passionate fans, and earn money for their work.
The company hopes, it will become a home to wide range of shows, from reality to comedy to live sports. Well, only the time will tell it.
The Facebook think a wide variety of Facebook shows can be successful, particularly:
- Shows that engage fans and community
- Live shows that connect directly with fans
- Shows that follow a narrative arc or have a consistent theme
- Live events that bring communities together
However, this new feature will be available only for few people in the US and based on that experience, they will expand to other countries.
