Facebook has launched its video-on-demand service, Facebook Watch, available globally while also expanding its Ad Breaks program so more partners can make money from their videos.
According to the social media giant’s management, taking Facebook Watch global also means new opportunities for creators and publishers around the world.
Facebook Watch enables users discover new videos spanning entertainment, sports, news and more in a personalized Watch feed, helps them to catch up with creators and publishers they love by keeping a watchlist, or a collection of recent videos from Pages they follow, save videos to watch later in Watch as well as participate in videos.
“Over time, you’ll be able to find new video experiences in your Watch feed, like watch parties, premieres, and videos focused on audience participation — like the new trivia game show, Confetti. And we’ll make it easier to find live videos so you can discuss the big moments as they’re happening,” a statement from Facebook reads.
