Facebook ‘Watch’ section launches as a platform for TV shows


Judging by the layout and features, Watch is intended as an alternative to YouTube for video creators of various sizes. It gives creators a way to lay out their entries/episodes in a more logical format than the usual profile feed and, of course, make money from their videos from TV-style Ad Breaks as Facebook exposes them to slices of its billion+ daily active users. Naturally, there are social discovery features that group videos your friends are watching, as well as sections based on videos that drive tons of comments, or particular forms of reactions.

Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) has one of the first original shows on the platform with Returning the Favor, and while there’s no mention of Lavar Ball, other items of interest include MLB’s live-streaming game of the week, and Nas Daily, a show where the (update: not the rapper) will make videos with his fans.
