    Question Facebook to launch a platform called Watch

    http://deadline.com/2017/08/facebook...ws-1202146043/

    It will be interesting how facebook will justify having watch without cannibalizing facebook live. I understand that the objective is to go after youtube, vimeo and dailymotion though for short form content.

    Facebook has officially announced Watch, its new video hub for the user community as well as content companies like A&E and MLB.

    Watch, which is getting a limited rollout in the U.S. before becoming more widely available, is being positioned as a feature similar to YouTube, where creators will be able to launch shows, enable Show Pages to serve as landing points for individual series, send users notifications about new content and eventually monetize the content through Ad Breaks.

    “We’ve been testing Ad Breaks over the past few months, and we will be slowly opening up availability to more creators to ensure we’re providing a good experience for the community,” wrote Nick Grudin, vice president of Media Partnerships at Facebook, in a blog post. He added that creators will be able to create sponsored shows using Facebook’s branded content tag.

    In addition to the live and recorded shows from creators, Facebook’s Watch will also house short- and long-form content from professional publishers. Shows include A&E’s dating show Bae or Bail, Brit & Co’s Tiny Houses, Univision’s Liga MX soccer matches, and an MLB game of the week.

    Maybe this will get Facebook to clean up their page code that crashes my iPad all the time. Probably not...
