Facebook Launches Platform For Shortform Shows

Facebook Launches Platform For Shortform Shows
Facebook continues to ramp up its original content with Watch, a platform introduced today for shows — a new type of shortform video on the social media juggernaut. Mark Zuckerberg’s company calls it a platform for all creators and publishers to find an audience, build a community of fans and earn money for their work. The Watch platform is organized around what users’ friends and communities are watching, with 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 users connect with friends about shows they too are following. Facebook is introducing Watch to a limited group of people in the U.S. and plans to bring the experience to more people soon. Also, it will be open shows to a limited group of creators but plans to a public rollout after.
